Returns the Client's IP address, as it is detected by the Gateway. This means that this call will communicate with the Gateway, and the Gateway will tell the Client what IP address its incoming traffic is coming from. If you have a client behind a Network Address Translation (NAT) router, then this address will be the Wide Area Network (WAN) address of the router instead of the Local Area Network (LAN) address of the Client, which is what you'd get with
