- The type of information specified by strPhoneBookOrModem: 0 is a Phonebook Name, 1 is a Modem Name, and 2 is a Direct Connection Name.
- The Phonebook Name, Modem Name, or Direct Connection Name used to make the connection.
- The name of a String tag that will receive the IP address.
Note: The tag name should be enclosed in quotes, as shown in the syntax diagram, or else the function will try to use the value of the tag.
- The name of a tag that, whenever the value of the tag changes, will trigger the function to refresh its returned value.
Also, this parameter is optional but you must include it when you configure the function on an object animation such as Text Data Link or Position.

This is the value returned by the function itself. The IP address is written to the tag specified by tagClientIP.
This function must be executed on the RAS client station, not on the server station. (Essentially, the station gets its own IP address.)
Also, this function is not supported on Windows 7.
