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

System.Object
  System.Net.NetworkInformation.IPv4InterfaceProperties

Namespace:  System.Net.NetworkInformation
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public abstract class IPv4InterfaceProperties

The IPv4InterfaceProperties type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Protected methodIPv4InterfacePropertiesInitializes a new instance of the IPv4InterfaceProperties class.
Top
  NameDescription
Public propertyIndexGets the index of the network interface associated with the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) address.
Public propertyIsAutomaticPrivateAddressingActiveGets a Boolean value that indicates whether this interface has an automatic private IP addressing (APIPA) address.
Public propertyIsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabledGets a Boolean value that indicates whether this interface has automatic private IP addressing (APIPA) enabled.
Public propertyIsDhcpEnabledGets a Boolean value that indicates whether the interface is configured to use a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to obtain an IP address.
Public propertyIsForwardingEnabledGets a Boolean value that indicates whether this interface can forward (route) packets.
Public propertyMtuGets the maximum transmission unit (MTU) for this network interface.
Public propertyUsesWinsGets a Boolean value that indicates whether an interface uses Windows Internet Name Service (WINS).

  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

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 static void DisplayIPv4NetworkInterfaces()
{
    NetworkInterface[] nics = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    Console.WriteLine("IPv4 interface information for {0}.{1}",
       properties.HostName, properties.DomainName);
    Console.WriteLine();   

    foreach (NetworkInterface adapter in nics)
    {
        // Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv4. 
        if (adapter.Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv4) == false)
        {
            continue;
        }
        Console.WriteLine(adapter.Description);
        // Underline the description.
        Console.WriteLine(String.Empty.PadLeft(adapter.Description.Length,'='));
        IPInterfaceProperties adapterProperties = adapter.GetIPProperties();
        // Try to get the IPv4 interface properties.
        IPv4InterfaceProperties p = adapterProperties.GetIPv4Properties();

        if (p == null)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("No IPv4 information is available for this interface.");
            Console.WriteLine();
            continue;
        }
        // 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);
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
}
