C# Question

Pinging in c# (uwp)

I'm trying to create a universal windows platform c# program that includes a network map. UWP c# doesn't include any built in pinging tools and system.net.pinging won't install. How can I ping using the windows.network.sockets namespace to find out what computers are on the network (and their mac address, hostname and hopefully operating system).

Answer

System.Net.Ping 4.0.0 Provides the System.Net.NetworkInformation.Ping class, which allows an application to determine whether a remote computer is accessible over the network.

Add the System.Net.Ping NuGet package to your project using

Install-Package System.Net.Ping -Version 4.0.0

in Package Manager Console
