NetworkInterfaceComponent Enumeration

Specifies the Internet Protocol versions that are supported by a network interface.

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

public enum NetworkInterfaceComponent
public enum NetworkInterfaceComponent
public enum NetworkInterfaceComponent

 Member nameDescription
IPv4Internet Protocol version 4. 
IPv6Internet Protocol version 6. 

The values in this enumeration are used by the Supports method to specify the Internet Protocol version supported by a network interface.

The following code example checks whether a network interface supports IPv4.

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);
    }
}
