[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)>] static member BeginGetHostEntry : hostNameOrAddress:string * requestCallback:AsyncCallback * stateObject:Object -> IAsyncResult
- Type: System.String
The host name or IP address to resolve.
- Type: System.AsyncCallback
