On a single machine you can use "localhost" or "" for the 
address. The port number can be any number up to 65535 that isn't being 
used for something else, which in practice usulally means a number above 
1024 (http uses 80, ftp uses 21, etc...). Examples often use 9999. You 
could also use netsend and netreceive (see attachments) if you don't 
need the OSC namespace stuff. That way you can send anything at all. If 
nothing happens, remember you have to send a connect message first to 
the send object.
