I have not programed or written code in over 10 years when I was in College. I was / am a Networks Administrator.
How, ever I find my self needing a custom interface for a DB system we recently ackwired where I work. I have been doing it in Visual Studio 2010 Express... Most of it works fine, however, I can not get the IPv4 to output to a label.txt on my forms. It always shows the IPv6, which I dont want. Can someone help me get this code? I have looked everywhere and none see to work.

Thanks a ton...

Here is the code, the Host Name populates, I get IP v6 but that is all.

 Public Function GetHostEntryIPv4()
        'Display IP address of local machine
        Dim ipEntry As IPHostEntry = Dns.GetHostEntry(Environment.MachineName)
        Dim ipAddr As IPAddress() = ipEntry.AddressList
        Me.Label3.Text = ("Address: " & ipAddr(0).ToString())

        'Display DNS of local machine
        Dim myiphost As IPHostEntry = Dns.Resolve(UserDomainName)
        Dim myipaddresses() As IPAddress = myiphost.AddressList
        Dim myipaddress As IPAddress
        For Each myipaddress In myipaddresses
            Label6.Text = myipaddress.ToString()
        Next

        'Display DHCP server address of local machine
        Dim adapters As NetworkInterface() = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces()
        Dim adapter As NetworkInterface
        For Each adapter In adapters
            Dim adapterProperties As IPInterfaceProperties = adapter.GetIPProperties()
            Dim addresses As IPAddressCollection = adapterProperties.DhcpServerAddresses
            If addresses.Count > 0 Then
                MessageBox.Show(adapter.Description)
                Dim address As IPAddress
                For Each address In addresses
                    Label7.Text = address.ToString()
                Next
            End If
        Next

        'Display Default Gateway of local machine
        Dim myNetworkAdapaters() As NetworkInterface = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces
        Dim myadapprops As IPInterfaceProperties = Nothing
        Dim myGateways As GatewayIPAddressInformationCollection = Nothing

        For Each myNetworkAdapter As NetworkInterface In myNetworkAdapaters
            myadapprops = myNetworkAdapter.GetIPProperties
            myGateways = myadapprops.GatewayAddresses
            For Each gateway As GatewayIPAddressInformation In myGateways
                Label8.Text = gateway.Address.ToString()
            Next
        Next
    End Function

    Private Sub GetNetworkInfo() Handles Me.Shown
        Dim ipEntry As IPHostEntry = Dns.GetHostEntry(Environment.MachineName)
        Dim IpAddr As IPAddress() = ipEntry.AddressList
        Dim strHostName As String
        'Dim i As Integer
        strHostName = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName()
        Label4.Text = ("Host Name: " & strHostName)


    End Sub

I have read that already... And tried it... I cant get it to write to the label on my form.
When I try I get an error:

"Error  1   Value of type 'System.Net.IPAddress' cannot be converted to 'Integer'.  C:\Users\DaymanetALS\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\LCARSv2\LCARSv2\Form13.vb"

Also, I cant get the other info I want, DNS, Gateway, etc)

Here is the code I tried.

 Public Sub DoGetHostEntry(hostName As [String])

        Dim host As IPHostEntry = Dns.GetHostEntry(hostName)

        Console.WriteLine("GetHostEntry(" + hostName + ") returns: ")

        Dim ip As IPAddress() = host.AddressList

        Dim index As Integer
        For index = 0 To ip.Length - 1
            Console.WriteLine(ip(index))
            Label3.Text = ("(Address: "(ip(index)))
        Next index
    End Sub

I was able to get my IPv4 to populate in Label. However, still trying to get DNS and Gateway Info.

Here is Code:

 Private Sub Getip(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Shown
        Label3.Text = ("Address: " & GetHostIP(Net.Sockets.AddressFamily.InterNetwork)) ' Show IPV4
    End Sub

    Private Function GetHostIP(ByVal af As System.Net.Sockets.AddressFamily) As String
        Dim host As System.Net.IPHostEntry = System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntry(System.Net.Dns.GetHostName)
        Dim strRet As String = ""
        For Each ip As System.Net.IPAddress In host.AddressList
            If ip.AddressFamily = af Then
                strRet = ip.ToString
                Exit For
            End If
        Next
        Return strRet
    End Function


    Private Sub GetNetworkInfo() Handles Me.Shown
        Dim ipEntry As IPHostEntry = Dns.GetHostEntry(Environment.MachineName)
        Dim IpAddr As IPAddress() = ipEntry.AddressList
        Dim strHostName As String
        'Dim i As Integer
        strHostName = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName()
        Label4.Text = ("Host Name: " & strHostName)


    End Sub

In other words your original question is solved but now you have a new one. That standard process in this case is to mark the original question solved and start a new one.
