IPv4InterfaceProperties Class

Provides information about network interfaces that support Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4).

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

'Declaration
Public MustInherit Class IPv4InterfaceProperties
'Usage
Dim instance As IPv4InterfaceProperties

public abstract class IPv4InterfaceProperties
public abstract class IPv4InterfaceProperties
Not applicable.

This class provides access to configuration and address information for network interfaces that support IPv4. You do not create instances of this class; they are returned by the GetIPv4Properties method.

For IPV6 properties, see GetIPv6Properties.

The following code example gets an GetIPv4Properties object and displays its data.

Public Shared Sub DisplayIPv4NetworkInterfaces() 
    Dim nics As NetworkInterface() = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces()
    Dim properties As IPGlobalProperties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties()
    Console.WriteLine("IPv4 interface information for {0}.{1}", properties.HostName, properties.DomainName)
    
    Dim adapter As NetworkInterface
    For Each adapter In  nics
        ' Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv4.
        If adapter.Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv4) = False Then
            GoTo ContinueForEach1
        End If
        Console.WriteLine()
        Console.WriteLine(adapter.Description)
        ' Underline the description.
        Console.WriteLine(String.Empty.PadLeft(adapter.Description.Length, "="c))
        Dim adapterProperties As IPInterfaceProperties = adapter.GetIPProperties()
        ' Try to get the IPv4 interface properties.
        Dim p As IPv4InterfaceProperties = adapterProperties.GetIPv4Properties()
        
        If p Is Nothing Then
            Console.WriteLine("No IPv4 information is available for this interface.")
            GoTo ContinueForEach1
        End If
        ' Display the IPv4 specific data.
        Console.WriteLine("  Index ............................. : {0}", p.Index)
        Console.WriteLine("  MTU ............................... : {0}", p.Mtu)
        Console.WriteLine("  APIPA active....................... : {0}", p.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingActive)
        Console.WriteLine("  APIPA enabled...................... : {0}", p.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabled)
        Console.WriteLine("  Forwarding enabled................. : {0}", p.IsForwardingEnabled)
        Console.WriteLine("  Uses WINS ......................... : {0}", p.UsesWins)
    ContinueForEach1:
    Next adapter
