Returns the machine network ID of the client that initiated Remote Execution.
Running this command
  • in a Single Player environment
  • outside of a remote-executed context
  • in a remote-executed context received from a Headless Client
will return 0 by design. To check if the context is remote executed, use isRemoteExecuted or isRemoteExecutedJIP.


Return Value:
Number - returns zero in the specific cases listed in the Description


Example 1:
private _callerRE = remoteExecutedOwner;
Example 2:
Send request to the server and get immediate response:
{ // in this scope, the remoteExecutedOwner equals clientOwner of the sender // so using it as target in remoteExec will send response right back at him [ time, // mission time value on the server { hint format [ "Request received!\nMission time value on the server is: %1", _this ]; } ] remoteExec ["call", remoteExecutedOwner]; // server response to the sender } remoteExec ["call", 2]; // send request to server

Always be sure to check if the remoteExecutedOwner is not equal to 0 when sending a remoteExec/remoteExecCall packet back, as this will result in sending packet to ANYONE (0):
if (remoteExecutedOwner isEqualTo 0) exitWith {}; // invalid RE owner _gearArray remoteExecCall ['someGearFunction', remoteExecutedOwner];
Will prevent from code being accidentally sent to everyone on the server.
