    Can you explain what you are trying to do, what you think you need for this, and why do you think so? – Meni Rosenfeld Jul 11 '13 at 16:09
  • Your question is word salad and doesn't make any sense. – David Schwartz Jul 12 '13 at 6:35
  • what I mean, how can the network know the person needed for communication, for example Bob wants to send money to Alice so bob includes Alice Public address my question why do I need an IP address for that? Sorry again – user2088760 Jul 12 '13 at 10:00
  • Where do you read that you need an IP address? – Pieter Wuille Jul 12 '13 at 23:55

In order to create a new Bitcoin transaction, all you will need is the receiver's public Bitcoin address (and your bitcoin wallet).

The transaction must eventually be broadcast to the network, though this can be done in a variety of ways. See https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Network for more details.
