Hi,

I was wondering, how could I get a list of the IP addresses of a machine (the program is running locally).

I need to initialise two TcpListener threads on a machine with two network cards and at this point they are hardcoded...

I am looking for something equivalent to the old gethostbyname from winsock...

Any ideas?
