This is pretty straightfoward using 'gethostbyname()' with your local name, e.g.

  char                szErrorMessage[ 129 ];
  char                szLocalHostName[ 129 ];
  unsigned long       ulInetAddr;
  struct sockaddr_in  sin;
  struct hostent      *pHostEnt;
  int                 nRC;

  WORD wVersionRequested;
  WSADATA wsaData;
  int err;
 
  wVersionRequested = MAKEWORD( 2, 2 );
 
  err = WSAStartup( wVersionRequested, &wsaData );

  nRC = gethostname( szLocalHostName, sizeof( szLocalHostName ) );

  if ( nRC == -1 )
    {
    sprintf( szErrorMessage, "gethostname() failed.  errno=[%d]", errno);

    perror( szErrorMessage );

    exit( EXIT_FAILURE );
    } // end if

  fprintf( stdout, "gethostname() returned %d characters.\n", nRC );
  fprintf( stdout, "  Name        = [%s]\n", szLocalHostName );

  if ( ( ulInetAddr = inet_addr( szLocalHostName ) ) == ((unsigned long)-1L) )
    {
    if ( ( pHostEnt = gethostbyname( szLocalHostName ) ) == NULL )
      {
      sprintf( szErrorMessage, "gethostbyname() failed.  errno=[%d]",errno );

      perror( szErrorMessage );

      exit( EXIT_FAILURE );
      } // end if

    memcpy( (char *)&sin.sin_addr, (char *)pHostEnt->h_addr,pHostEnt->h_length);
    }
  else
    {
    memcpy( (char *)&sin.sin_addr, (char *)&ulInetAddr, sizeof(ulInetAddr ));

  } // end if

  fprintf( stdout, "  Dot Address = [%s]\n", inet_ntoa( sin.sin_addr ) );

  WSAShutdown();
