IPv4InterfaceProperties.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabled IPv4InterfaceProperties.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabled IPv4InterfaceProperties.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabled IPv4InterfaceProperties.IsAutomaticPrivateAddressingEnabled Property

Definition

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether this interface has automatic private IP addressing (APIPA) enabled.

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

Property Value

true if the interface uses APIPA; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following code example gets an IPv4InterfaceProperties object and displays its data.

void DisplayIPv4NetworkInterfaces()
{
   array<NetworkInterface^>^nics = NetworkInterface::GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
   IPGlobalProperties ^ properties = IPGlobalProperties::GetIPGlobalProperties();
   Console::WriteLine( "IPv4 interface information for {0}.{1}", properties->HostName, properties->DomainName );
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum23 = nics->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum23->MoveNext() )
   {
      NetworkInterface ^ adapter = safe_cast<NetworkInterface ^>(myEnum23->Current);

      // Only display informatin for interfaces that support IPv4.
      if ( adapter->Supports( NetworkInterfaceComponent::IPv4 ) == false )
      {
         continue;
      }
      Console::WriteLine();
      Console::WriteLine( adapter->Description );

      // Underline the description.
      Console::WriteLine( String::Empty->PadLeft( adapter->Description->Length, '=' ) );
      IPInterfaceProperties ^ adapterProperties = adapter->GetIPProperties();

      // Try to get the IPv4 interface properties.
      IPv4InterfaceProperties ^ p = adapterProperties->GetIPv4Properties();

Remarks

Automatic private IP addressing allows computers that do not have access to a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to be automatically assigned an IP address that does not conflict with public addresses. These addresses are in the range 169.254.0.0 to 169.254.255.255.
