vrf What's my IP address?

Question asked by bwalden on Jan 29, 2004
Hi Folks,

I'm sending data to other applications using an ActiveX UDP broadcast
object (IP Works from devSoft Inc.).  When I output data I also receive
a copy which I wish to reject.  Each received message includes the IP
address and port number of the sender so I can use this to determine if
received data is new or simply an echo of what I sent.  In order for
this to work, I need a method for my Vee application to determine the IP
address of the machine its running on.  One method is to broadcast a
test message and see where the echo comes from.  This works but I can't
help but think there is a better way. Any thoughts?
