IPAddress.IPv6None Field

Provides an IPv6 address that indicates that no network interface should be used. This property is read-only.

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

Public Shared ReadOnly IPv6None As IPAddress

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 IPv6None field is defined even when the Socket.OSSupportsIPv6 property is false.

The following code example displays the value of the current host's IPv6 None address in standard compact notation.

' This sample prints 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.

      ' Get the None address.
      Dim none As IPAddress = IPAddress.IPv6None

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

      outputBlock.Text &= "The IPv6 None address is: "
      outputBlock.Text &= ipv6None
      outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
   Catch e As Exception
      outputBlock.Text &= "Exception: "
      outputBlock.Text &= e.ToString()
      outputBlock.Text &= vbCrLf
   End Try
