I have degined a simple tool look that if the helpdesk users inputs an Id of the user it will then display on a label the ip address that it found when the button is click

project us

1 text box
1 button
1 label

any help as to how to start the code is greatful, I know to to display the user IP of a local machine but not that of a remote machine

There must be a way on Windows to find out which processes have network connections open and to which address/port. I know nothing of the APIs on Windows, but I'd have a hard time believing that that info isn't available somehow.

Also, please use punctuation - writing entire paragraphs without any makes them difficult to read.

Most companies use TeamViewer as it is minimally install, easy to have folk navigate to, and everyone shares a screen. Versus kicking someone out of their login.

One way is to use a web client with a streamreader and download the source html by using downloadstring from a lookup provider like; http://ipinfo.info/html/ip_checker.php and acquire the IP from there. Show what you've tried

Actually, stream reader isn't even needed if you strip the html properly upon receiving it.
