MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE structure

The MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE structure contains a table of unicast IP address entries.

Syntax


typedef struct _MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE {
  ULONG                    NumEntries;
  MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_ROW Table[ANY_SIZE];
} MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE, *PMIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE;

Members

NumEntries

A value that specifies the number of unicast IP address entries in the array.

Table

An array of MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_ROW structures containing unicast IP address entries.

Remarks

The MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE structure is defined on Windows Vista and later.

The GetUnicastIpAddressTable function enumerates the unicast IP addresses on a local system and returns this information in an MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE structure.

The MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_TABLE structure may contain padding for alignment between the NumEntries member and the first MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_ROW array entry in the Table member. Padding for alignment may also be present between the MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_ROW array entries in the Table member. Any access to a MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_ROW array entry should assume padding may exist.

Examples

The following example retrieves a unicast IP address table and prints some values from each of the retrieved MIB_UNICASTIPADDRESS_ROW structures.
