I dont know how wrongly i expressed myself, but when i said the LAN ip, its because im in
the same local area network that the other mir4bilis client is in. Duh of course connecting
remotely would open a socket against the proxy itself unless the 'proxy' had support for an
ICQ dc module or whatever, but thats far away from my problem.
