Hi, I've outlined a few issues that prevent Sys::HostIP from retrieving IP addresses on Vista, Server 2008 & non-English systems. 1) Windows Vista and Server 2008 The output from ipconfig now seems to prepend lines containing an adapters IP addresse with "IPv4 Address" rather than "IP Address". C:\>ipconfig Windows IP Configuration Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe10::ae5b:b47:bae3:904e%11 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.23.11 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1 Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection* 6: Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Tunnel adapter Local Area Connection* 7: Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : 2) Non-English systems The ipconfig command on a Swedish Windows Server 2008 system will give something of the form: C:\>ipconfig IP-konfiguration f�r Windows Ethernet-anslutning Anslutning till lokalt n�tverk: Anslutningsspecifika DNS-suffix . : L�nklokal IPv6-adress . . . . . . : ff88::b6fa:c6e1:9a9a:9114%10 IPv4-adress . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.40.241 N�tmask . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Standard-gateway. . . . . . . . . : 192.168.40.1 Tunnelanslutning: Anslutning till lokalt n�tverk*: Tillst�nd . . . . . . . . . . . . : Fr�nkopplad Anslutningsspecifika DNS-suffix . : Tunnelanslutning: Anslutning till lokalt n�tverk* 8: Tillst�nd . . . . . . . . . . . . : Fr�nkopplad Anslutningsspecifika DNS-suffix . : Best Wishes Peter Walsham -- Axomic Ltd 56 Compton Street London EC1V 0ET, UK t: +44 (0)870 850 0435 m: +44 (0)7812 122418 http://www.axomic.com The information contained in this message is confidential and should not be disclosed to any third party whether or not you are the intended addressee indicated in the message.
