The command jls reports the loopback address for all of the jails I
have defined on other hosts.  For example:

[root at vhost02 ~]# jls
   JID  IP Address      Hostname              Path
     2      hlldns04              /usr/jails/hlldns04
     3     hllmx150              /usr/jails/hllmx150

[root at vhost02 ~]# ezjail-admin console hlldns04
