I want to make a VB6 app that can
a) show my computer name and IP Address and
b) show IP Address and comp names of other PCs on the network
c) query a single comp name/IP address as typed in by user
A and C should be easy enough to figure out, but what about B?
do i need an instance of this program running on connected PCs to do it or can i use something else, even if i wasn't connected to LAN when system booted up - connect to sitch later?
solution + VB6 coding would be appreciated
(also, sometimes my IP address appears as real IP address (188.8.131.52) and sometimes as lookback adapter (127.0.0.1) depending on what pc i run program on. Why is it so and how can i fix it?)
Thanks - Ryan R
