At the top of this page: http://www.torry.net/networks.htm there is a unit to get lists of computer names and IP addresses.

Here is a function that returns a StringList with all the IPs of the local machine:

function LocalIPs: TStrings;
  type
    PPInAddr = ^PInAddr;
  var
    wsaData: TWSAData;
    HostInfo: PHostEnt;
    HostName: array[0..255] of char;
    Addr: PPInAddr;
  begin
    Result:= TStringList.Create;
    if WSAStartup($0102, wsaData) <> 0 then Exit;
    try
      if gethostname(HostName, SizeOf(HostName)) <> 0 then Exit;
      HostInfo:= gethostbyname(HostName);
      if HostInfo = nil then Exit;
      Addr:= Pointer(HostInfo^.h_addr_list);
      if (Addr = nil) or (Addr^ = nil) then Exit;
      Result.Add(inet_ntoa(Addr^^));
      Inc(Addr);
      while Addr^ <> nil do
      begin
        Result.Add(inet_ntoa(Addr^^));
        Inc(Addr);
      end;
    finally
      WSACleanup;
    end;
  end;

I didn't write this, I got it off the 'net somewhere, unfortunately I cannot remember where.  Thanks to whoever wrote it.
