    You might need to know Winsock programming to do that sort of thing. Just a suggestion, I don't do Winsock so I can't really point you in any direction. But, that is what first came to mind.

    try using something like

    gethostbyname("localhost");

    (you might need to use WSAAsyncGetHostByName if you are using Socket windows).

    good luck

    If that doesn't work (and there's no reason why it shouldn't), here's a FAQ with three alternate methods.
