IPEndPoint Class

Represents a network endpoint as an IP address and a port number.

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

type IPEndPoint =  
        inherit EndPoint

The IPEndPoint type exposes the following members.

Public methodIPEndPoint(Int64, Int32)Initializes a new instance of the IPEndPoint class with the specified address and port number.
Public methodIPEndPoint(IPAddress, Int32)Initializes a new instance of the IPEndPoint class with the specified address and port number.

Public propertyAddressGets or sets the IP address of the endpoint.
Public propertyAddressFamilyGets the Internet Protocol (IP) address family. (Overrides EndPoint.AddressFamily.)
Public propertyPortGets or sets the port number of the endpoint.

Public methodCreateCreates an endpoint from a socket address. (Overrides EndPoint.Create(SocketAddress).)
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified Object is equal to the current IPEndPoint instance. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns a hash value for a IPEndPoint instance. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSerializeSerializes endpoint information into a SocketAddress instance. (Overrides EndPoint.Serialize().)
Public methodToStringReturns the IP address and port number of the specified endpoint. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Public fieldStatic memberMaxPortSpecifies the maximum value that can be assigned to the Port property. The MaxPort value is set to 0x0000FFFF. This field is read-only.
Public fieldStatic memberMinPortSpecifies the minimum value that can be assigned to the Port property. This field is read-only.

The IPEndPoint class contains the host and local or remote port information needed by an application to connect to a service on a host. By combining the host's IP address and port number of a service, the IPEndPoint class forms a connection point to a service.
