[REBOL] Re: How to get allocated ip number

From: michel:goasampis:free at: 17-Oct-2002 22:03

Thanks a lot, all ! I'm surprise and grateful for the time you spend for this question. To "ping" a web server's port (Gabriele's answer) seems to be an efficient solution to get one active ip address among the possible interfaces a pc handles, and is, finally, appropriate to my purpose. Otherwise, the discussion about the different network situations (consequently about the differents interface's names) was verry enlightening, showing the difficulty to develope cross platform networking code. On this subject, if I need to get one working local network ip, do you think the following code is usefull for all platform ? print read foo: rejoin [dns:// read dns://] If it is, I can also surely get either local network or internet ip, and it's fine ! thanks again, Michel, less newbie than yesterday
