Related to my previous post... is there any way to get the IP address of the source message? Will Messenger.GetMessageSource(Message) return the IP address of the machine or the actual device making the connection? Basically, if computer 1 (C1) is behind a firewall and it connects to computer 2 (C2) over the internet, will Messenger.GetMessageSource(Message) return the internal LAN address (e.g. 192.168.x.x) or the external IP address of C1's firewall?

Thank you!

No. Exactly due to firewall/NAT issues.
