In this article, I am going to explain how to find the IP address through the program. This is helpful for us when we try to know about the name of the computer and IP address of the client system.

DNS: It refers to the domain name system, it is a internet technology that is used to convert domain name to IP addresses.
GetHostName: It is a function that retrieves the host name of the current system.
GetHostEntry: It is a method which sends query to the server for the IP addresses. It also returns the address and information about a given host.
IP addresses: Internet Protocol address is a computer technology that is designed to communicate one computer to another through a internet.

for finding the IP address:
PrivateSub Button1_Click (senderAs System.Object, e As System.EventArgs)Handles Button1.Click
Dim strHostName AsString
Dim strIPAddress AsString
strHostName = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName()
strIPAddress = System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntry(strHostName).AddressList(0).ToString()
MessageBox.Show("Host Name: " & strHostName & "; IP Address: " & strIPAddress)
Output of the program is:
