[second attempt at sending, since my new machine is not yet fully
configured and the first attempt bounced :-/]


yep, that's what OSC is for -- sending to arbitrary IP addresses.  be
warned though, that since OSC (usually) uses UDP as its transport, your
packets might get lost en route; although even the intercontinentally
ballistic osc barrages i've sent (1 packet every 50ms or so, from
ISP#1(Germany) to ISP#2(USA) using 56k analog modems on both endpoints)
by and large seemed to get through intact...
