Nobody has any clue what you're talking about. It all fell apart when you said "to show textbox that enable user to change there localhosts". We have no idea what you're talking about. "change there localhosts"????

So what's wrong with putting up a textbox and getting the IP address? Depending on how your connection code is written, the client just needs the new IP address. So what's the problem?

What do you mean? "Verify" can mean many different things.

If you're asking about seeing if something was really entered in a TextBox, you better learn VB.NET first.

If you're asking if the user entered a valid IP Address or Hostname, then you can Ping that address. See for more info.

If you want to verify that the IP is pointing to a server of the correct type, then you're going to have to do something to talk to that server as you normally would. What you do and how you do it are entirely up to you.
