I'm trying to create a peer-to-peer instant messaging application and I've run into some difficulties. Now for the users, I want them to the actual hostname of their own machine so both users will see the same text (AKA User 1 and 2). I apologize if this is a dumb question but I just can't figure out how to do it.
