You're not very familiar with security, Carsten, are you? ;-)
See your nearest bookstore.

Honestly people. At the very least, if you DON'T show your IP no one can use it to crack your internal LAN.
Just use Because if you do show it, it can potentially be used. 
Yes, this is a very very small thing in the realm of security. That doesn't mean you should wave it away, Podsnap :-)
BTW, the very fact that it is supposed to  be his 'private' IP is all the more reason not to show it.

May I see your iptables rules, complete with IPs please ;-)
