options:

string name = Environment.MachineName;
string name = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName();
string name = System.Windows.Forms.SystemInformation.ComputerName;
string name = System.Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable(“COMPUTERNAME”);

for IP addresses, you may have several:


IPAddress[] a = Dns.GetHostByName(Dns.GetHostName()).AddressList;
   for (int i=0; i<a.Length; i++)
      Console.WriteLine ("IpAddr[{0}]={1}",i,a[i]); }
