For this we have a class name GetLocalHost,Inside the main method we have a class NetworkInterface,this class represents a Network Interface made up of a name and a list of IP addresses assigned to this interface. This is used to identify the list of multicast group joined  to identify the local interface.

1)getNetworkInterface( )  -  This method returns you the interface used on this machine.

The System.outprintln print the interface name by calling the get Display Name ( ) method.

2)getDisplayName ( )   -  This method returns you name of the network interface.

3)getInet Addresses( )  - This  method returns you Enumeration with  all the  subset of the Inet addresses bound to this network interface.

 public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {

  Enumeration<NetworkInterface> nets = 
 NetworkInterface.getNetworkInterfaces
();

 0 for (NetworkInterface netint : Collections.list(nets)) {
  System.out.println("\nInterface Name : " + netint.getDisplayName());

  Enumeration<InetAddress> inetAddresses = netint.getInetAddresses();

 for (InetAddress inetAddress : Collections.list(inetAddresses)) {

  
 System.out.println("Local host Name\t: " + inetAddress.getHostName());
  
 System.out.println("Host Address\t: " + inetAddress.getHostAddress());
  }
  }
  }
}

Output:

Interface name  : MS TCP Loopback interface
Local host name : localhost
