IPv6InterfaceProperties Class

Provides information about network interfaces that support Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).

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

public abstract class IPv6InterfaceProperties

This class provides access to configuration and address information for network interfaces that support IPv6. You do not create instances of this class; they are returned by the GetIPv6Properties method.

For IPV4 properties, see GetIPv4Properties.

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

public static void DisplayIPv6NetworkInterfaces()
{
    NetworkInterface[] nics = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    Console.WriteLine("IPv6 interface information for {0}.{1}",
       properties.HostName, properties.DomainName);

    int count = 0;

    foreach (NetworkInterface adapter in nics)
    {
        // Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv6. 
        if (adapter.Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv6) == false)
        {
            continue;
        }

        count++;

        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 IPv6 interface properties.
        IPv6InterfaceProperties p = adapterProperties.GetIPv6Properties();


        if (p == null)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("No IPv6 information is available for this interface.");
            Console.WriteLine();
            continue;
        }
        // Display the IPv6 specific data.
        Console.WriteLine("  Index ............................. : {0}", p.Index);
        Console.WriteLine("  MTU ............................... : {0}", p.Mtu);
    }

    if (count == 0)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("  No IPv6 interfaces were found.");
        Console.WriteLine();
    }

}
void DisplayIPv6NetworkInterfaces()
{
    NetworkInterface* nics[] = NetworkInterface::GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
    IPGlobalProperties* properties = IPGlobalProperties::GetIPGlobalProperties();
    Console::WriteLine(S"IPv6 interface information for {0}.{1}",
        properties->HostName, properties->DomainName);

    System::Collections::IEnumerator* myEnum24 = nics->GetEnumerator();
    while (myEnum24->MoveNext())
    {
        NetworkInterface* adapter = __try_cast<NetworkInterface*>(myEnum24->Current);
        // Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv6.
        if (adapter->Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent::IPv6) == false)
        {
            continue;
        }
        Console::WriteLine();
        Console::WriteLine(adapter->Description);
        // Underline the description.
        Console::WriteLine(String::Empty->PadLeft(adapter->Description->Length,'='));

        IPInterfaceProperties* adapterProperties = adapter->GetIPInterfaceProperties();
        // Try to get the IPv6 interface properties.
        IPv6InterfaceProperties* p = adapterProperties->GetIPv6InterfaceProperties();

        if (p == 0)
        {
            Console::WriteLine(S"No IPv6 information is available for this interface.");
            continue;
        }
        // Display the IPv6 specific data.
        Console::WriteLine(S"  Index ............................. : {0}", __box(p->Index));
        Console::WriteLine(S"  MTU ............................... : {0}", __box(p->Mtu));
    }
}
