IPGlobalStatistics.ReceivedPacketsWithAddressErrors Property

Gets the number of Internet Protocol (IP) packets with address errors that were received.

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

public abstract long ReceivedPacketsWithAddressErrors { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64
An Int64 value that specifies the total number of IP packets received with errors in the address portion of the header.

The value returned by this property includes packets discarded for address related issues in the header fields, such as invalid addresses. If packet forwarding is not enabled, the value returned by this property includes packets that were discarded because the destination address was not a local address.

The following code example displays statistics for received IP packets with errors.

public static void ShowInboundIPErrors()
    IPGlobalProperties properties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties();
    IPGlobalStatistics ipstat = properties.GetIPv4GlobalStatistics();
    Console.WriteLine("  Inbound Packet Errors:");
    Console.WriteLine("      Header Errors ....................... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("      Address Errors ...................... : {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("      Unknown Protocol Errors ............. : {0}",
