The following code example shows how to retrieve endpoint information for the current role instance:


var roleInstance = RoleEnvironment.CurrentRoleInstance; 
foreach (RoleInstanceEndpoint instanceEndpoint in roleInstance.InstanceEndpoints.Values) 
{  
   Trace.WriteLine("Instance endpoint address and port: " + instanceEndpoint.IPEndpoint, "Information");
   Trace.WriteLine("Protocol for the endpoint: " + , instanceEndpoint.Protocol, "Information");
}
