IPAddress.IPv6Loopback Field

Provides the IP loopback address. This property is read-only.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

'Declaration
Public Shared ReadOnly IPv6Loopback As IPAddress
'Usage
Dim value As IPAddress

value = IPAddress.IPv6Loopback

public static final IPAddress IPv6Loopback
public static final var IPv6Loopback : IPAddress
Not applicable.

The IPv6Loopback field is equivalent to 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 in colon-hexadecimal notation, or to ::1 in compact notation.

The following code example displays the value of the current host's loopback address in standard compressed format.

' This methods prints the value of the current host loopback address in  
' standard compressed format. 
Private Shared Sub printIPv6LoopBackAddress()
   Try
      ' Get the loopback address.
      Dim loopBack As IPAddress = IPAddress.IPv6Loopback
      
      ' Transform the loop-back address to a string using the overloaded
      ' ToString() method. Note that the resulting string is in the compact 
      ' form: "::1".
      Dim ipv6LoopBack As String = loopBack.ToString()
      Console.WriteLine(("The IPv6 Loopback address is: " + ipv6LoopBack))
   Catch e As Exception
      Console.WriteLine(("[printIPv6LoopBackAddress] Exception: " + e.ToString()))
   End Try
End Sub 'printIPv6LoopBackAddress


// This method displays the value of the current host loopback address in
// standard compressed format. 
private static void DisplayIPv6LoopBackAddress()
{
    try {
        // Get the loopback address.
        IPAddress loopBack = IPAddress.IPv6Loopback;
        // Transform the loop-back address to a string using the overladed
        // ToString() method. Note that the resulting string is in the
        // compact 
        // form: "::1".
        String ipv6LoopBack = loopBack.ToString();
        Console.WriteLine(("The IPv6 Loopback address is: " 
            + ipv6LoopBack));
    } 
    catch(System.Exception  e) {
        Console.WriteLine(("[DisplayIPv6LoopBackAddress] Exception: "
            + e.ToString()));
    } 
} //DisplayIPv6LoopBackAddress
