Need more info, does the server need it's own IP, or does a client need the server's IP?

Could you use java.net.InetAddress.getAddress() to obtain it?

Does the client already have a connection to the server? If it's a Socket connection then you'd just use the getInetAddress() method of the Socket class.

But if the question is "I have no idea what the IP address of the server is, how can I connect to it?" then the answer is something like "Ask the administrator of the server."
