PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress (iphlpapi)
 
.
Summary
The PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress function associates an interface with the IP stack index having the specified address.

C# Signature:

    [DllImport("iphlpapi.dll", EntryPoint = "PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress")]
    static extern uint PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress(IntPtr Interface_handle, uint pfatType, ref uint IPAddress);

VB Signature:

Declare Function PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress Lib "iphlpapi.dll" (TODO) As TODO

User-Defined Types:

None.

Notes:

    /// <summary>
    /// The PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress function associates an interface with the IP stack index having the specified address.
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="Interface_handle">[in] Specifies a handle to the interface to associate with the IP stack index.</param>
    /// <param name="pfatType">[in] Specifies the address type for the interface. This parameter is of type PFADDRESSTYPE. </param>
    /// <param name="IPAddress">[in] Pointer to an array of bytes that specifies the IP address for the interface.</param>
    /// <returns>If the function succeeds, the return value is NO_ERROR.</returns>
