Hi Experts,

May I know is anyone of you could help me to figure out how to write VB code to check what PCs (IP address) are currently connected to network (By winsock or others)?

Well, you could use something like netserverenum from vbadmincode to list the machines on the domain: http://www.vbadmincode.btinternet.co.uk/code/netserverenum.zip

then now that you have the hostname, use the code here to get the ip address from the hostname:
http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?code/network/iplookup.htm

Should be pretty easy to put together at that point.

i gave it a shot and it works out great.
