In this post, I will tell you how to Get IP Address In ASP.NET. An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there.”

There are two versions of IP address, earlier Version of IP address is IPv4 contains IP address as 32 bit number, and then because of growth of internet new version of IP is developed named IPv6 which takes 128 bit to store the IP Address.
