NetworkInterface.getByInetAddress() in a remote computer
Joined: Jul 13, 2007
This is the code I have. Obviously it doesn't work because the given ip is a remote computer.
My question is:is it possible to use some sort of this code (something similar) to get the NetworkInterface of a remote machine?
thanks in advance,

Assuming you have a connection via Socket, you can look at the socket class, you will see a method called getRemoteSocketAddress that returns a SocketAddress which will print the IP address and port of the other endpoint. That is probably the most direct way.
