//For parsing the string to IP

IPAddress ip =  IPAddress.Parse("127.0.0.1")
 

// To get the localhost IP

IPHostEntry iphost = Dns.GetHostByName(Dns.GetHostName());

IPAddress[] addr = iphost.AddressList;
 

for (int i = 0; i < addr.Length; i++)

{

                listBox1.Items.Add(string.Format("IP Address {0}: {1} ", i, addr[i].ToString()));

}
