No, I know how to find my IP address, it's the host address at the other end that I need.
Oh, in Windows, open a cmd shell, and type "ipconfig". On OSX, of which I know much less, you need to go to the network settings to see, but there must be a way to get this from a shell (but I don't know how). Is this what you meant?

EDIT: I haven't used Linux in a while, but Google says ifconfig is the way to go.

If you have iFile you can do most things on the device itself, rather than using an SSH client.
I do have iFile, but I'm just more comfortable doing stuff from my computer, it's bigger.

I'll give it a shot, thanks . . .

I'm aware of that. What I need is the host name so that I can transfer the files on my computer to the IP address of my phone.

Hey, just trying to help. As I/we have stated the host/URL is the IP of your phone on your wireless network e.g 192.168.0.6 username: root password: alpine

Change your protocol to SSH as well, FTP isn't the right one.
