[Mono-list] How to listen on local socket
Fri, 1 Aug 2003 16:35:17 +0200
Maybe this is a simple question but I'm desperately searching a way to do this:
I want create a TCP server app and need to listen to a local socket.
How do I create the local endpoint?
I tried it 2 different ways:
IPHostEntry ipHostInfo = Dns.Resolve(Dns.GetHostName()); // get local Hostname
IPAddress ipAddress = ipHostInfo.AddressList; // get first IP-Address from Host
IPEndPoint localEndPoint = new IPEndPoint(ipAddress, 4444); // connect to port
This works under Windows but under Linux/Mono the address is 127.0.0.1.
Other addresses aren't in the AddressList.
I know this is not the preferred way.
IPEndPoint localEndPoint = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any, 4444);
This works under Windows, too. Linux: Loopback device...
How do I get the right IP address for the first (all?) network card(s)?
