As to the local IP, when I need it I get it with an ugly sed/awk script run against the output of /sbin/ifconfig. Possibly a more elegant way exists... As to the presence of the route to "his" ip, maybe it's not so necessary to know? It very well may not exist at the moment, but reappear a second later... Eugene P.S.
