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

public static readonly IPAddress IPv6None

Field Value

Type: System.Net.IPAddress

The Socket.Bind method uses the IPv6None field to indicate that a Socket must not listen for client activity. The IPv6None field is equivalent to 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0 in colon-hexadecimal notation, or to ::0 in compact notation.

The following code example displays the value of the current host's None address in standard compressed format.

// This method displays the value of the current host's None address in  
// standard compressed format. The None address is used by the host to disable
// listening to client activities on all the interfaces.
private static void displayIPv6NoneAddress()
{
  try
  {

    // Get the None address.
    IPAddress none  = IPAddress.IPv6None;

    // Transform the None address to a string using the overloaded
    // ToString() method. Note that the resulting string is in the compact 
    // form: "::".
    string ipv6None = none.ToString();

    Console.WriteLine("The IPv6 None address is: " + ipv6None);
  }
  catch (Exception e) 
  {
    Console.WriteLine("[displayIPv6NoneAddress] Exception: " + e.ToString());
  }
}
