As mention in the subject,
i was trying to get the host IP address,
the code run perfectly , and i got an unexpected results...
Instead of IP address in IPv4 format , i got it in IPv6 format!
 
How shall i overcome this issue?
 
try
    {
        //iphostname = Dns.GetHostName();  // Resolving Host name
        IPHostEntry ipentry = Dns.GetHostEntry(hostLabel.Text);
        IPAddress[] addr = ipentry.AddressList;// Resolving IP Addresses
        for (int i = 0; i < addr.Length; i++)
        {
            try
            {
                ipLabel.Text=  Convert.ToString(addr[i]) + "\r\n";
            }
            catch
            {
                ipLabel.Text += "IP Address            | " + "\r\n";
            }
        }
    }

string strHostName = "";
 strHostName = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName();
 IPHostEntry ipEntry = System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntry(strHostName);
 IPAddress[] addr = ipEntry.AddressList;
 ipLabel.Text = addr[addr.Length - 2].ToString();
