IPAddressInformation.IsDnsEligible IPAddressInformation.IsDnsEligible IPAddressInformation.IsDnsEligible IPAddressInformation.IsDnsEligible Property

Definition

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the Internet Protocol (IP) address is valid to appear in a Domain Name System (DNS) server database.

public:
 abstract property bool IsDnsEligible { bool get(); };
public abstract bool IsDnsEligible { get; }
member this.IsDnsEligible : bool
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property IsDnsEligible As Boolean

Property Value

true if the address can appear in a DNS database; otherwise, false.

Examples

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