I can answer the IP address question: Get(HostIPAddress)
Don't see a way with native FileMaker functions to do the rest.
Get ( HostIPAddress ) would work, but will only return the host IP address of the database the function is used in, correct? For my FM Spider database, the script is self-contained, and does not run any scripts in the databases it crawls.
Now that I think about it, wasn't the FM5.5 server administration done through a FileMaker database?
No, FMS 5.5 adminstration was done with FM Server Configuration (or something close) I had it open 2 hours ago and forgot the exact name. [on a Mac, name may be different on WIN]
