Find IP Address of Android Device with Web Service

I have installed a web service in my android device. Now I want to send a request to Android from PC via WiFi. I need the ip address of my android device to access it from a computer on the same network. How can I find the IP through my code?

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance.

To get the IP address of a device, use this method:

public String getLocalIpAddress() {
    try {
        for (Enumeration<NetworkInterface> en = NetworkInterface.getNetworkInterfaces(); en.hasMoreElements();) {
            NetworkInterface intf = en.nextElement();
            for (Enumeration<InetAddress> enumIpAddr = intf.getInetAddresses(); enumIpAddr.hasMoreElements();) {
                InetAddress inetAddress = enumIpAddr.nextElement();
                if (!inetAddress.isLoopbackAddress()) {
                    return inetAddress.getHostAddress().toString();
    } catch (SocketException ex) {
        Log.e(LOG_TAG, ex.toString());
    return null;


if this method returns null, there is no connection. If the method returns a string, this string contains the ip address currently used by the device regardless of 3G or WiFi.



Just found how to get your internal IP address: Settings -> Wireless Control -> Wi-Fi Settings

At the bottom under "Wi-Fi networks" tap the connection you are connected to,

A window appears with information like:

Signal Strength
**IP Address**
