[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example returns a string representation of the IP address and port number of the specified IPEndPoint.

[Visual Basic] 
Private Shared Sub displayEndpointInfo(ByVal endpoint As IPEndPoint)
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint Address : " + endpoint.Address.ToString())
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint AddressFamily : " + endpoint.AddressFamily.ToString())
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint Port : " + endpoint.Port.ToString())
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint ToString() : " + endpoint.ToString())

  Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.")
  Console.ReadLine()
End Sub 'displayEndpointInfo


[C#] 
private static void displayEndpointInfo(IPEndPoint endpoint)
{
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.Address : " + endpoint.Address);
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.AddressFamily : " + endpoint.AddressFamily);
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.Port : " + endpoint.Port);
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.ToString() : " + endpoint.ToString());

  Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.");
  Console.ReadLine();
}

[C++] 
void displayEndpointInfo(IPEndPoint* endpoint)
{
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint->Address : {0}", endpoint->Address);
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint->AddressFamily : {0}", __box(endpoint->AddressFamily));
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint->Port : {0}", __box(endpoint->Port));
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint.ToString() : {0}", endpoint);

   Console::WriteLine(S"Press any key to continue.");
   Console::ReadLine();
}
