I'm doing a uni project and I need to know how to get VB to return my systems IP Address to my application so that it can be encrypted.  The IP address could either be displayed automatically or through clicking a button?

Place a Winsock control and a Textbox on your form.

This will list the IP address.

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Text1 = Me.Winsock1.LocalIP
End Sub
