Try this kind:

Dim s$
s = Winsock1.LocalIP
MsgBox s

You need put that value to a variable or use it directly in some functionality.
It will return String.

Of course, the command is used in order to get the value to be placed as a string into a caption on the form . My problem is that it doesn't compile. Is there some reference that should be used or something else missing?
Well there is a component Microsoft Winsock Control 6.0
That needs to be in the project. That is included in a professional version of Visual Basic

There is no extra references, you can press F2 in VB IDE that launch Object breowser the MS winsocklib is there.
