public static int NetworkToHostOrder (int network);
static member NetworkToHostOrder : int -> int
Public Shared Function NetworkToHostOrder (network As Integer) As Integer

Parameters

network

Examples

The following example uses the NetworkToHostOrder method to convert an integer value from network byte order to host byte order.

void NetworkToHostOrder_Integer( int networkByte )
{
   int hostByte;
   // Converts an integer value from network Byte order to host Byte order.
   hostByte = IPAddress::NetworkToHostOrder( networkByte );
   Console::WriteLine( "Network Byte order to Host Byte order of {0} is {1}", networkByte, hostByte );
}
public void NetworkToHostOrder_Integer(int networkByte)
{
  int hostByte;
  // Converts an integer value from network byte order to host byte order.
  hostByte = IPAddress.NetworkToHostOrder(networkByte);
  Console.WriteLine("Network byte order to Host byte order of {0} is {1}", networkByte, hostByte);
}
Public Sub NetworkToHostOrder_Integer(networkByte As Integer)
    Dim hostByte As Integer
    ' Converts an integer value from network byte order to host byte order.
    hostByte = IPAddress.NetworkToHostOrder(networkByte)
    Console.WriteLine("Network byte order to Host byte order of {0} is {1}", networkByte, hostByte)
End Sub 'NetworkToHostOrder_Integer

Remarks

Different computers use different conventions for ordering the bytes within multibyte integer values. Some computers put the most significant byte first (known as big-endian order) and others put the least-significant byte first (known as little-endian order). To work with computers that use different byte ordering, all integer values that are sent over the network are sent in network byte order which has the most significant byte first.

The NetworkToHostOrder method converts multibyte integer values that are stored on the host system from the byte order used by the network to the byte order used by the host.
