HI
add winsock to the uses section.

uses Winsock;

function GetIPAddress(name : string) : string;
var wsdata : TWSAData;
    he : PHostEnt;
    ss : pchar;
    ip : TInAddr;
begin
  WSAStartup(MakeWord(1, 1), wsdata);
  he := gethostbyname(pchar(name));
  if he<>nil then
  begin
    ip.S_addr := integer(pointer(he^. h_addr_list^)^);
    ss := inet_ntoa(ip);
    Result := string(ss);
  end;
  WSACleanup();
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
form1.caption := GetIPAddress('www.microsoft.com');
end;

the points are yours, but could you tell me it 'vice versa' (From IP address find out name)?

thanks.

i think you can use the DNS component from FPIette's package to do the viceversa (ip to hostname)
