char acClientHost[255];
WORD wVersionRequested;
WSADATA wsaData;
struct hostent *pHostent = NULL;
 
wVersionRequested = MAKEWORD( 1, 1);

if ( nErr = WSAStartup ( wVersionRequested, &wsaData))
{
  // error initializing winsck...
}

    if  (   dwErr =   gethostname (   ( char *) acClientHost, 255))
        {
            return  (   nWSockRC);
        }

if (!(pHostent = gethostbyname ( acClientHost)))
{
 // an error occured...
}
else
{
 printf ( "IP: %s\n", BinIP2StrIP ( *(( long *)  pHostent->h_addr));
}


char *BinIP2StrIP ( long lnIP)
{
static char s_acStrIP [ 16];

PUCHAR puc = ( unsigned char *) &lnIP;
unsigned int aun [ 4];

for ( int i = 0; i < 4; aun [ i++] = *puc++);

sprintf ( s_acStrIP, "%d.%d.%d.%d", aun [ 0], aun [ 1], aun [ 2], aun [ 3]);

return ( s_acStrIP);
}
