Hello,

I want to get the IP Address of the machine which is
having Windows 95 as OS.  The below given code snippet
helps me to get the IP address for machines
having Windows 98 or Windows NT as OS.

Expecting your response.

Thanks in advance.

      WORD wVersionRequested;
      WSADATA wsaData;
      char name[255];
      char * ip;
      PHOSTENT hostinfo;
      wVersionRequested = MAKEWORD( 2, 0 );

      if ( WSAStartup( wVersionRequested, &wsaData ) == 0 )
      {

            if( gethostname ( name, sizeof(name)) == 0)
            {
                  if((hostinfo = gethostbyname(name)) != NULL)
                  {
                        ip = inet_ntoa (*(struct in_addr
