How does one find the IP of the LAN computers? I have always had trouble with this.

You don't need to install the MTL library on the non-flying machine.
Install it on the flying machine and THEN copy across the mtl.dat
file from the flying machine to the non-flying machine.

Chap 20 in the manual shows how to set up the s/w across a LAN.
Taking my setup as an example: the IP of my flying machine is, that of my remote non-flying machine is
Like you I have the 'Network Interface' and the 'User Interface'
both running on my non-flying pc so, on the 'Network & Multi PC' tab
in 'IvAp - Configuration' I have the following entries in the 'Multi
PC setup' box:

IP of Flight Simulator PC:
IP of Network Interface PC:
IP of User Interface PC:

This must be set-up identically on both pc's.

The order of running each program is described in the manual and
must be followed exactly.

Good luck!

OK, so I'm a month behind everyone else with IVAO.  I'm
hoping you've ironed out all the wrinkles by now and that
someone can help me with configuring it to run on my LAN.

IVAP installed on both PCs, as per the manual.  FS PC has FS
interface, non-FS PC has Network interface and User
interface.  MTL and base library installed on FS PC and
mtl.dat copied to non-FS PC.  (NOTE - manual does not say to
install MTL/base library on non-FS PC, so I have not done so).

As per manual, I start Network interface, then User
interface, on non-FS PC.  Problem #1 - error message "Failed
to read MTL configuration files", followed by instructions to
install the MTL/base package on this
(non-FS) PC.

Can someone confirm that, despite the manual not mentioning
this, it IS in fact necessary to install MTL/base library to
the non-FS PC?

I'm sure there will be more questions as I progress.
