Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the interface supports the specified protocol.

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

public abstract bool Supports (
	NetworkInterfaceComponent networkInterfaceComponent
)
public abstract boolean Supports (
	NetworkInterfaceComponent networkInterfaceComponent
)
public abstract function Supports (
	networkInterfaceComponent : NetworkInterfaceComponent
) : boolean

Parameters

networkInterfaceComponent

A NetworkInterfaceComponent value.

Return Value

true if the specified protocol is supported; otherwise, false.

The following code example displays statistics for IPV4 interfaces on the local computer.

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

    foreach (NetworkInterface adapter in nics)
    {
        // Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv4.
        if (adapter.Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv4) == false)
        {
            continue;
        }
        Console.WriteLine();
        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.");
            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);
    }
}
