You could specify

lynx -useragent="`hostname`"

or (system configuration dependent, freebsd below)

-useragent="`ifconfig | grep -w inet | head -2 | tail -1|awk '{ print $2 }'`"

but the IP address is at network layer and is usually visible to servers from a client user agent; proxies are a notable exception. Server hostname lookup is resolver dependent and also subject to IP visibility.

Is there an option I can set for lynx where I can specify the IP address or host name of the machine I am coming from? The version of lynx I am using is 2.8.5rel.1. Thanks.
