I want to ping a host in Visual Basic and get as a return the IP address

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I know how to operate My.Computer.Network.Ping("label-2304", 1000).

It will give me true or false as a return.

What I am looking for is to ping the host and get the IP address back in return.

I am trying to write an application which gives me a list of all the hosts on a peer to peer network with their IP address.

Any ideas?

Best regards
