Whos IP? Yours? First of all you should download F. Piette's winsocket components (http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/). They are freeware w/source (remeber to send him a postcard :)
The component has a function, LocalIPList which gives you all the ip addresses your computer has. (Normally only one when you havn't got a network). It has also a function LocalHostName.

Just ask your questions and I will try to answear them as good as I can.

chrb: hmm... this seems like a good opportunity to ask: I downloaded the components but cannot "install" them in Delphi 3.0 under Win NT 4.0 - error message is: Unsupported 16-bit resource. I guess there is a way around this? Does anybody use them in NT?

the ICS (Internet component suite) is much better. Do a search or look for it in delphi super page or tori's delphi pages.

16 Bit  resources : You used the wrong files to register the components. Look for the 32 directory.

If I understand the question, while explorer and netscape are running, you want to "know" which url are they pointed at ?

let me know and I'll post the answer for that. You need to use DDE.

O.k. - for netscape :

// windowhandle is the netscape main window from which you want to get the url.
// this is optional and is needed only if the window is not enabled. you will need to change the // func a little
function GetURLFromIE(WindowHandle: integer): String;
var
  DDEClient: TDDEClientConv;
  TmpStr: String;
  WindowEnabled: boolean;
begin
  DDEClient := TDDEClientConv.Create(self);
  try
    WindowEnabled := IsWindowEnabled(WindowHandle);
    EnableWindow(WindowHandle, true);
    try
      if(DDEClient.SetLink('NETSCAPE','WWW_GetWindowInfo')) then begin
        TmpStr := DDEClient.RequestData('0xFFFFFFFF');

        // the result will contain url address and name - parse it out
        Result := TmpStr;
      end;
    finally
      if(not WindowEnabled) then // was disabled - disable it back
        EnableWindow(WindowHandle, false);
    end;
  finally
    try
      DDEClient.CloseLink;
    except
    end;
    DDEClient.Free;
  end;
end;

for IE :

function GetURLFromIE(WindowHandle: integer): String;
var
  DDEClient: TDDEClientConv;
  TmpStr: String;
  WindowEnabled: boolean;
begin
  Result := '';
  DDEClient := TDDEClientConv.Create(self);
  try
    WindowEnabled := IsWindowEnabled(WindowHandle);
    EnableWindow(WindowHandle, true);
    try
      if(DDEClient.SetLink('iexplore','WWW_GetWindowInfo')) then begin
        TmpStr := DDEClient.RequestData('0xFFFFFFFF');

        // same here - parse out what you need
        Result := TmpStr;
      end;
    finally
      if(not WindowEnabled) then // was disabled - disable it back
        EnableWindow(WindowHandle, false);
    end;
  finally
    try
      DDEClient.CloseLink;
    except
    end;
    DDEClient.Free;
  end;
end;
