When the stand alone PC gets connected to the network, the PC is assigned a dynamic IP address ( if the PC is configured so). All you can do is, use java.net.InetAddress.getByName() call to get an InetAddress object and call the getAddress() method on that object. That will give you the eact IP address in byte[].
Hope this helps your problem.
