I don't know in win95^, but if i'm not mistaken in win311, you can get a pc's ip addr if it is set, from system.ini file. i'm not sure in which line. Best of luck...

Ok weinrj. I don't know coding for this search but I can tell you where to get. Open System.ini file and look for "DefaultGateway=999.999.99.99"
I'm not sure under which section. Try your best..
