  We have System.Net.NetworkInformation.NetworkInterface.GetIPProperties() function in .net for desktop programs. Need an equivalent API or an API which provides me the DNS address of a local machine. I want to send DNS request programmatically.

thanks in Advance.

You can use DatagramSocket.GetEndpointPairsAsync to retrieve IP address by hostname.

thanks Robin.. I don't need the API to find out the IP address. I need an API to get the DNS address.
