Interestingly it now works and I can get the remote client's ip address. But when I
connect from inside my network, and use the non local network address to connect to the
server, the server sees the router address ... but when others connect, I see their real
ip addresses. Odd. Perhaps I am not really going out and coming back in again at all.
