Bug Description

On hosts that have multiple IP addresses assigned to them (because of IP aliases or because of multiple network interfaces), the IP address shown on the uppper left corner besides the local hostname is always 0.0.0.0. IMHO, it should instead show the IP of the interface that is currently used to connect to the default route.
