I'm hard at work trying to get this program to work and I'm needing some help getting this peice of code to work over the network based on an IP address.

So instead of the method name with no arguments, it woud have String IP_ADDR..

Any help would be appriciated,
Thanks in advance!

public static String getCPUName() {
    try {
      Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(CPU_NAME_CMD);
      StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(process.getInputStream());
      String result = reader.getResult();
      int p = result.indexOf(REGSTR_TOKEN);
      if (p == -1)
         return null;
      return result.substring(p + REGSTR_TOKEN.length()).trim();
    catch (Exception e) {
      return null;
