The command to manually enter your host or IP information is
  • /localinfo host ip
If neither -u nor -h worked, you can use this snippet to automatically retrieve your "external" IP address.

-u requests the host information from the IRC server, but since some of them return a masked (not real) host, it won't always work.

I've not seen one that returned my own masked .. they've all given me the correct host/ip .. what they mask is everyone else's to me (and mine to everyone else).
What servers are you referring to? Maybe I've just not used them.

Yep you're right, I was under the impression the server is sending back the masked host to yourself too, however when you're connected through a BNC -u can fail.

Also, Undernet server is dumb enough to give you the masked host (when you're identified and +x) in response to the /userhost command.
