_IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX_XP structure

The IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX structure stores an IP address prefix.

Syntax

typedef struct _IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX_XP {
  union {
    ULONGLONG Alignment;
    struct {
      ULONG Length;
      DWORD Flags;
    };
  };
  struct _IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX_XP *Next;
  SOCKET_ADDRESS               Address;
  ULONG                        PrefixLength;
} IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX_XP, *PIP_ADAPTER_PREFIX_XP;

Members

__unnamed_union_02fd_16

__unnamed_union_02fd_16.Alignment

__unnamed_union_02fd_16.__unnamed_struct_7

__unnamed_union_02fd_16.__unnamed_struct_7.Length

__unnamed_union_02fd_16.__unnamed_struct_7.Flags

Next

A pointer to the next adapter prefix structure in the list.

Address

The address prefix, in the form of a SOCKET_ADDRESS structure.

PrefixLength

The length of the prefix, in bits.

Remarks

The IP_ADAPTER_ADDRESSES structure is retrieved by the GetAdaptersAddresses function. On Windows XP with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and later, the FirstPrefix member of the IP_ADAPTER_ADDRESSESstructure is a pointer to a linked list of IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX structures.

The SOCKET_ADDRESS structure is used in the IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX structure. On the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) released for Windows Vista and later, the organization of header files has changed and the SOCKET_ADDRESS structure is defined in the Ws2def.h header file which is automatically included by the Winsock2.h header file. On the Platform Software Development Kit (SDK) released for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP, the SOCKET_ADDRESS structure is declared in the Winsock2.h header file. In order to use the IP_ADAPTER_PREFIX structure, the Winsock2.h header file must be included before the Iphlpapi.h header file.

Requirements

   
Windows version Windows Vista, Windows XP with SP1 [desktop apps only] Windows Server 2003 [desktop apps only]
Header iptypes.h (include Iphlpapi.h)
