Windows .NET Programmatically Configure Network Interface with C#

Problem: I want to write a C# program that will configure IP address(es).

Why this is useful?

You may have one server and a backup server (say a web server) and you would want to write a program to automatically move the second IP address of an interface from the master to the backup server.

Solutions:

This article on Code Project gives seems to be right on http://www.codeproject.com/cs/system/cstcpipwmi.asp

Also helpful is to look at MSDN on the Network Adapter Configuration win32 class page.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394217.aspx

You would access each of the item in this Win32 class by named array index into the
ManagementObjectCollection object using the member name exactly spelled out.

e.g., string description = objeMO["Description"];
