public class LocalIPGetter {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

        System.out.println(inetAddress.getHostName());

        // Get IP Address
        System.out.println(inetAddress.getHostAddress());

public class RemoteIPGetter {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        InetAddress inetAddress = InetAddress.getByName("www.google.com");

        // Get Hostname
        System.out.println(inetAddress.getHostName());

        // Get IP Address
