IcmpV6Statistics.DestinationUnreachableMessagesReceived Property

Gets the number of Internet Control Message Protocol version 6 (ICMPv6) messages received because of a packet having an unreachable address in its destination.

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

public abstract long DestinationUnreachableMessagesReceived { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64
An Int64 value that specifies the total number of Destination Unreachable messages received.

A Destination Unreachable message can be sent to the computer that is the source of a packet for any of the following reasons:

  • The computer cannot find a route to the destination address.

  • Communication with the destination address is administratively prohibited. For example, a firewall prevents delivery of packets to the destination.

  • The destination address is unreachable.

  • The destination port is unreachable. For example, there is no listener available for the packet's protocol.

The following example displays the value of this property.

public static void ShowIcmpV6UnreachableData ()
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics statistics = properties.GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine ("  Destination Unreachables ............ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}", 
        statistics.DestinationUnreachableMessagesSent, statistics.DestinationUnreachableMessagesReceived);
}
void ShowIcmpV6UnreachableData ()
{
    IPGlobalProperties* properties = IPGlobalProperties::GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics* statistics = properties->GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console::WriteLine (S"  Destination Unreachables ............ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}",
        __box(statistics->DestinationUnreachableMessagesSent), __box(statistics->DestinationUnreachableMessagesReceived));
}
