Remarks

The BeginGetHostEntry method asynchronously queries a DNS server for the IP addresses and aliases associated with an IP address.

Note This member emits trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing in the .NET Framework.

The asynchronous BeginGetHostEntry operation must be completed by calling the EndGetHostEntry method. Typically, the method is invoked by the requestCallback delegate.

This method does not block until the operation is complete. To block until the operation is complete, use the GetHostEntry method.
