Resolves a host name to a host IP address.
object.Resolve( HostName, IpAddress,
- A string value that specifies the host name to resolve.
- A string variable that will contain the IP address for the
specified host name when the method returns. This parameter must be
passed by reference.
- An optional parameter that is reserved for future use. This
parameter should be omitted or passed as an empty variant.
A value of zero is returned if the host name could be resolved
into an IP address. Otherwise, a non-zero error code is returned
which indicates the cause of the failure.
The Resolve method is used to convert a host name into an
IP address. Note that unlike the Query method, this method
will use the local host file when resolving the host name. If the host
name has both an IPv4 and IPv6 address, this method will return the
IPv4 address by default for compatibility with existing applications.
It will only return an IPv6 address if the host has no IPv4 address
assigned to it.
