RemoteHost Property

The address of the remote host. Domain names are resolved to IP addresses.


public String getRemoteHost();
public void setRemoteHost(String remoteHost);

Default Value



This property specifies the IP address (IP number in dotted internet format) or Domain Name of the remote host. It is set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is established.

If this property is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated, and upon successful termination of the request, this property is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

If the class is configured to use a SOCKS firewall, the value assigned to this property may be preceded with an "*". If this is the case, the host name is passed to the firewall unresolved and the firewall performs the DNS resolution.

Example (Connecting)

IPPortControl.RemoteHost = "MyHostNameOrIP"
IPPortControl.RemotePort = 777
IPPortControl.Connected = true
