Public MustInherit Class IPv6InterfaceProperties

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodIPv6InterfaceProperties()

Initializes a new instance of the IPv6InterfaceProperties class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyIndex

Gets the index of the network interface associated with an Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyMtu

Gets the maximum transmission unit (MTU) for this network interface.

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_pubmethodGetScopeId(ScopeLevel)

Gets the scope ID of the network interface associated with an Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address.

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.)

This class provides access to configuration and address information for network interfaces that support IPv6. You do not create instances of this class; they are returned by the GetIPv6Properties method.

For IPV4 properties, see GetIPv4Properties.

The following code example gets an IPInterfaceProperties object and displays its data.

Public Shared Sub DisplayIPv6NetworkInterfaces() 
    Dim nics As NetworkInterface() = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces()
    Dim properties As IPGlobalProperties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties()
    Console.WriteLine("IPv6 interface information for {0}.{1}", properties.HostName, properties.DomainName)

    Dim count as Integer = 0

    Dim adapter As NetworkInterface
    For Each adapter In  nics
        ' Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv6.
        If adapter.Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv6) = False Then
            GoTo ContinueForEach1
        End If
        count += 1

        Console.WriteLine()
        Console.WriteLine(adapter.Description)
        ' Underline the description.
        Console.WriteLine(String.Empty.PadLeft(adapter.Description.Length, "="c))

        Dim adapterProperties As IPInterfaceProperties = adapter.GetIPProperties()
        ' Try to get the IPv6 interface properties.
        Dim p As IPv6InterfaceProperties = adapterProperties.GetIPv6Properties()


        If p Is Nothing Then
            Console.WriteLine("No IPv6 information is available for this interface.")
            GoTo ContinueForEach1
        End If
        ' Display the IPv6 specific data.
        Console.WriteLine("  Index ............................. : {0}", p.Index)
        Console.WriteLine("  MTU ............................... : {0}", p.Mtu)
    ContinueForEach1:
    Next adapter

    if count = 0 then
        Console.WriteLine("  No IPv6 interfaces were found.")
        Console.WriteLine()
    End if

End Sub 'DisplayIPv6NetworkInterfaces
