    Help Parsing String into an ip address

    So im trying to parse a string into a Ip Address but i have a problem, the IPAddress.Parse method only works for ipv4 address's how do i parse ANY Ip address into a string, if i use the IPaddress.Parse method on my public(remote) IP it throws an exception but on ipv4 local ip it doesn't how do i parse ANY ip address the user inputs as a string as an Ip Address? Please help

    What specifically is it failing on? It should work just fine. Try your question again, this time with proper grammar. I can barely tell what you're having problems with.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Holy balls. After you type a sentence and put a period, you make a space. Take my syntax as an example. Seriously, that was painful as hell to read.

    You mention your local IP address being ipv4, so I'm assuming your "public(remote)" ip address is ipv6? I've never used ipv6 before, but a quick test...

    // a random ipv6 address
    String test_ip = "2001:0db8:85a3:0042:0000:8a2e:0370:7334";
    // convert to IPAddress object
    IPAddress test_addr = IPAddress.Parse(test_ip);
    // confirm it worked?
    ...showed the IPAddress object as being capable of supporting this feature. I can only suggest that you are inputting a badly formatted ip address. Perhaps you could provide an example of a user input which throws the exception?
