Inetaddress - Compilation error

I am getting a compilation error for the following code
System.out.print(" Host Name : " + InetAddress.getHostName());

The message is "The method getHostName from type InetAddress is not static"

Any ideas how to resolve this.

Yes, if you know the difference between a static and non-static method? If not, take this topic back to the beginner's forum. As a clue, what are you actually taking the hostname of---there isn't an IP address in there at all is there?
