    ' Creates an instance of the IPAddress' for the specified IP string in dotted-quad notation.
    Dim hostIPAddress As IPAddress = IPAddress.Parse(IpAddressString)
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The IP address '" + IpAddressString + "' is {0}", hostIPAddress.ToString())
End Sub 'PrintAddressFamily

public void PrintAddress(String ipAddressString)
    // Creates an instance of the IPAddress for the specified IP string in 
    // dotted-quad notation. 
    IPAddress hostIPAddress = IPAddress.Parse(ipAddressString);

    Console.WriteLine("\nThe IP address '" 
        + ipAddressString + "' is {0}", hostIPAddress.ToString());
} //PrintAddress
