NetworkInterface.Supports Method (NetworkInterfaceComponent)

 

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the interface supports the specified protocol.

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

Public Overridable Function Supports (
	networkInterfaceComponent As NetworkInterfaceComponent
) As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the specified protocol is supported; otherwise, false.

The following code example displays statistics for IPV4 interfaces on the local computer.

Public Shared Sub DisplayIPv4NetworkInterfaces() 
    Dim nics As NetworkInterface() = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces()
    Dim properties As IPGlobalProperties = IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties()
    Console.WriteLine("IPv4 interface information for {0}.{1}", properties.HostName, properties.DomainName)

    Dim adapter As NetworkInterface
    For Each adapter In  nics
        ' Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv4.
        If adapter.Supports(NetworkInterfaceComponent.IPv4) = False Then
            GoTo ContinueForEach1
        End If
        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 IPv4 interface properties.
        Dim p As IPv4InterfaceProperties = adapterProperties.GetIPv4Properties()

        If p Is Nothing Then
            Console.WriteLine("No IPv4 information is available for this interface.")
            GoTo ContinueForEach1
        End If
        ' Display the IPv4 specific data.
        Console.WriteLine("  Index ............................. : {0}", p.Index)
        Console.WriteLine("  MTU ............................... : {0}", p.Mtu)
        Console.WriteLine("  APIPA active....................... : {0}", p.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingActive)
        Console.WriteLine("  APIPA enabled...................... : {0}", p.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabled)
        Console.WriteLine("  Forwarding enabled................. : {0}", p.IsForwardingEnabled)
        Console.WriteLine("  Uses WINS ......................... : {0}", p.UsesWins)
    ContinueForEach1:
    Next adapter
