I'm trying to make a file transfer program so that I can access files in my computer from another computer, remote. But, when I am at the remote computer, how can I get the IP adress of my own computer to the program in order to make the connection ?

Thank you

Altough this is quite a strange problem before coding a file sharing / transfer prog I think what you need is an IP Resolver. It can give you the specific IP when you give the remote computer's network name.

I use no-ip account for remote my home computer. Create free account from www.no-ip.com and download NoIPDuc program. Install NoIPDuc program and update current ip number. When remote your computer type just yourname.no-ip.com or visit no-ip page and enter account. You can learn easy your computer ip adress.

Best regards,

Let's suppose I have a server program in a remote PC and the client one in mine. How can I make the connection between these two programs ? Don't I have to get the IP or the name of the computers ? I'm very beginning in winsock stuff.. Could anyone post a code example ?
