I've found how to resolve a hostname to IP address in the post:
But if I need to get the hostname/domain name from an IP address, how can I do it in Win8 app?
I've tried the solutions in the mentioned article, but no hostname is found in the attributes of "HostName"....
Sorry I can't find any way to ahieve that.
