UnicastAddresses Property

IPInterfaceProperties.UnicastAddresses Property

 

Gets the unicast addresses assigned to this interface.

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

public abstract UnicastIPAddressInformationCollection UnicastAddresses { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Net.NetworkInformation.UnicastIPAddressInformationCollection

An UnicastIPAddressInformationCollection that contains the unicast addresses for this interface.

A unicast address identifies a single computer. Packets sent to a unicast address are sent to the computer identified by the address.

The following code example displays the unicast addresses for the network interfaces on the local computer.

public static void DisplayUnicastAddresses()
{
    Console.WriteLine("Unicast Addresses");
    NetworkInterface[] adapters  = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
    foreach (NetworkInterface adapter in adapters)
    {
        IPInterfaceProperties adapterProperties = adapter.GetIPProperties();
        UnicastIPAddressInformationCollection uniCast = adapterProperties.UnicastAddresses;
        if (uniCast.Count >0)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(adapter.Description);
            string lifeTimeFormat = "dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy  hh:mm:ss tt";
            foreach (UnicastIPAddressInformation uni in uniCast)
            {
                DateTime when;

                Console.WriteLine("  Unicast Address ......................... : {0}", uni.Address);
                Console.WriteLine("     Prefix Origin ........................ : {0}", uni.PrefixOrigin);
                Console.WriteLine("     Suffix Origin ........................ : {0}", uni.SuffixOrigin);
                Console.WriteLine("     Duplicate Address Detection .......... : {0}", 
                    uni.DuplicateAddressDetectionState);

                // Format the lifetimes as Sunday, February 16, 2003 11:33:44 PM
                // if en-us is the current culture.

                // Calculate the date and time at the end of the lifetimes.    
                when = DateTime.UtcNow + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(uni.AddressValidLifetime);
                when = when.ToLocalTime();    
                Console.WriteLine("     Valid Life Time ...................... : {0}", 
                    when.ToString(lifeTimeFormat,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture)
                );
                when = DateTime.UtcNow + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(uni.AddressPreferredLifetime);   
                when = when.ToLocalTime();
                Console.WriteLine("     Preferred life time .................. : {0}", 
                    when.ToString(lifeTimeFormat,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture)
                ); 

                when = DateTime.UtcNow + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(uni.DhcpLeaseLifetime);
                when = when.ToLocalTime(); 
                Console.WriteLine("     DHCP Leased Life Time ................ : {0}", 
                    when.ToString(lifeTimeFormat,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture)
                );
            }
            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
