6.20.8 Sockets.SocketAddress: accessing
- = aSocketAddress
- Answer whether the receiver and aSocketAddress represent
the same machine. The host name is not checked because
an IPAddress created before a DNS is activated is named
after its numbers-and-dots notation, while the same IPAddress,
created when a DNS is active, is named after its resolved name.
- Convert the receiver to a ByteArray passed to the operating system's
- Answer an hash value for the receiver
- Answer the host name (or the digit notation if the DNS could not
resolve the address). If the DNS answers a different IP address
for the same name, the second response is not cached and the digit
notation is also returned (somebody's likely playing strange jokes
with your DNS).
