Hi, I use Microsoft VPN to connect/login from a remote computer to SBS2003. The local IP is something like 192.168.0.xxx, the VPN IP is something like 10.0.0.xxx. If I use winsock to get the IP I get the 192.168.0.xxx, but what I'm looking for is the 10.0.0.x address. I need this to VNC in to the client who's obtaining IP's via DHCP.

Thanks for that, that tells me the DHCP server address, do you know how to get the local IP that was issued by the DHCP server ?.

Yes, I've tried that, it gives the local IP of 192.168.0.xxx, but what I need is the VPN I of 10.0.0.xxx.

I see the address I want in ipconfig, so I suppose it's just a matter of parsing it via a text file. Thanks.
