Echo Server UDP Example Java

Code Snippets

Following code snippets are very useful for the programmer in coding.

1. Finding the IP Address of the system where the program is running

InetAddress add = InetAddress.getLocalHost();
System.out.println ("The system address: " + add.getHostAddress());

Getting URN from URL (name to address)

InetAddress add = InetAddress.getByName("");
System.out.println ("My system name: " + add.getHostName());

2. Getting URL from URN (address to name)

InetAddress add = InetAddress.getByName("");
System.out.println ("Yahoo address in number format : " + add.getHostAddress());

3. To find who is accessing the system

a) When TCP/IP protocol is used

ServerSocket sersock = new ServerSocket(4000);
Socket sock = sersock.accept();
InetAddress add = sock.getInetAddress();
System.out.println(add.getHostAddress() + " on port number " + sock.getPort());

b) When UDP protocol is used

DatagramSocket dsock = null;
DatagramPacket dpack = null;
InetAddress add = dpack.getAddress();
System.out.println(add.getHostAddress() + " on port number " + dpack.getPort());
