Property Value

An Int64 value that specifies the total number of Destination Unreachable messages received.

A Destination Unreachable message can be sent to the computer that is the source of a packet for any of the following reasons:

  • The computer cannot find a route to the destination address.

  • Communication with the destination address is administratively prohibited. For example, a firewall prevents delivery of packets to the destination.

  • The destination address is unreachable.

  • The destination port is unreachable. For example, there is no listener available for the packet's protocol.

The following example displays the value of this property.

public static void ShowIcmpV6UnreachableData ()
{
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IcmpV6Statistics statistics = properties.GetIcmpV6Statistics();
    Console.WriteLine ("  Destination Unreachables ............ Sent: {0,-10}   Received: {1,-10}", 
        statistics.DestinationUnreachableMessagesSent, statistics.DestinationUnreachableMessagesReceived);
}
