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


public abstract class IPAddressInformation

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodIPAddressInformation()

Initializes a new instance of the IPAddressInformation class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAddress

Gets the Internet Protocol (IP) address.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsDnsEligible

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the Internet Protocol (IP) address is valid to appear in a Domain Name System (DNS) server database.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsTransient

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the Internet Protocol (IP) address is transient (a cluster address).

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

You do not create instances of this class; instances are returned by methods in the IPInterfaceProperties class.

The following code example displays the Domain Name Service (DNS) addresses for the network interfaces on the local computer.

public static void DisplayDnsAddresses()
{
    NetworkInterface[] adapters  = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
    foreach (NetworkInterface adapter in adapters)
    {

        IPInterfaceProperties adapterProperties = adapter.GetIPProperties();
        IPAddressCollection dnsServers = adapterProperties.DnsAddresses;
        if (dnsServers.Count > 0)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(adapter.Description);
            foreach (IPAddress dns in dnsServers)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("  DNS Servers ............................. : {0}", 
                    dns.ToString());
            }
            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
