[PD] Get IP from Pd + network broadcast

I wanted to check if there are any new methods to get one's own ip from
Pd - that is, so that a user doesn't go check the system settings. It
would be necessary for all windows, macos and linux. Older messages talk
about using [shell] in unix systems, and some hack with a batch file in
windows. If this is still the current method, how would one activate a
batch file in windows from inside pd?
As my knowledge of network isn't that good, just to check: to send a
broadcast message for all peers in the same network, is the correct IP
e.g. xxx.xxx.xxx.255? I read somewhere that 255.255.255.255 was also for
broadcast, but since it's not working I imagine I read wrong.
Resuming: to send a broadcast message in the network, it's necessary to
know the first 3 parts of one's IP?
And final question: besides netpd, are there any known public patches
where users from several networks can connect to and send/receive data?
