I am looking for a simple web page with ASP that a user would browse to that would show their computer name and IP.  I would like it to work with Win 9x if possible.

Thank you for any help,
Bill

Hello

This will give you the IP address of the machine opening asp page..

<%=Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")%>

Check for more varaibles..

You have a web server running on Win 9x??

http://telefonid.com/ipc.asp <- here is an example (it also has the function to get the country from the IP database)

Source of the file (i deleted the GetCountry function)

<%
yourip = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")
      ipaddr=Request.Servervariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
      set obj = CreateObject( "a1asp.dns" )
      host = obj.ReverseDNSLookup( cstr(ipaddr) )
      If len(host) > 0 Then ipaddr = host
      Set obj = nothing
%>Your IP is: <%=yourip%><br>
DNS returned: <%=ipaddr%><br><%
%>

I used here a1asp.dns to get the DNS for the IP address.

Hello

I don't think it is possible to resolve an IP Address without using any third party component to do so..

Is this how it is supposed to look?
----------------------------------
<html>
<head>
<title>IP Test</title>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#FFFFFF">
<%
yourip = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")
     ipaddr=Request.Servervariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
     set obj = CreateObject( "a1asp.dns" )
     host = obj.ReverseDNSLookup( cstr(ipaddr) )
     If len(host) > 0 Then ipaddr = host
     Set obj = nothing
%>Your IP is: <%=yourip%><br>
DNS returned: <%=ipaddr%><br><%
%>
</body>
</html>

bfisher, it's a server-side script - running on win2k3 and a1asp is a third-party COM component as neeraj said (it's possible, if i remember, to resolve DNS in .net?)

Only way i know how to show it in HTML is to use external provider (let's say - me at the moment)
and put into your HTML code the following line:

<iframe src="http://www.telefonid.com/ipc.asp" frameborder=0 scrolling=0 width=300 height=180>Iframe not supported!</iframe>

Of course, you can't use my file as a solution because you never know when i'm going to change it or remove it.

I suggest you - find a friend who has server running, ask him/her to write a short script for IP and DNS and include it to your page using iframe.

Yes, it's right, but now you must get a1asp.dns from somewhere - i know that a month ago i couldn't find it anymore from the internet (the download page was removed) but i may have it zipped somewhere on my hdd or server. I'll take a search.

Ok, i found it on my server and packed it (http://www.telefonid.com/a1asp.dns.rar)
Unpack it to let's say ... C:\Program Files\a1asp.dns
and then go to command line (on your server of course)
and write
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\a1asp.dns\a1asp.dns.dll"

There is a readme also in the packed file.

I must warn you, i'm going to remove this file soon - i'm not sure if it is free to download and share in the internet.

But i hope the solution worked.
