NOT the netmask
NOT the default gateway
NOT the name server
NOT the domain suffix....

If you are using Trumpet, go to the File/Setup screen and look at the IP
Address field. Use the first 3 numbers in that address for makehost.

If you are using Win95's dialup networking, run WINIPCFG (from your
c:\windows directory) and use the IP Address that it shows you.

If you are using Chameleon or any other tcp stack, I'm not familiar with
them, but they should ALL refer to it as your IP address.
