  • Hi,

    Since the issue is related to Iaas, I have moved this thread to Web Sites forums for getting a better support.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • I suspect we are not allowing you to use this particular API. What exactly are you trying to do?

  • Hello,

    We have an error reporting module that checks for network connection. If it doesn't have one then it won't submit /log error reports. This works on Silverlight/winforms/wpf/mvc/webapi (everywhere but azure). It would be nice if this call threw an exception if it's not allowed/implemented.

  • I'm not positive that we're blocking that. I base that comment on the fact that it seems unlikely that we would allow you to enumerate network adapters on the VM. I'll see if I can dig up some info on why this is happening.

  • Blake,

    We're looking into this. What is your site name in WAWS?

  • Hello,

    I need to recreate it but it was useast. Do you want me to reupload the sample?

  • Hi, Blake. No, that's okay. I've filed a bug for us to look into how we're sandboxing that API. I'm pretty sure we're blocking it in WAWS, but something wrong because of what you're seeing.

  • Hello,

    Were you able to find out if this is being blocked?

    Friday, March 29, 2013 1:05 AM
  • Yes, it's blocked. The thing we're investigating is how we're doing it and why it always returns false. However, for your purposes, you won't be able to use this API in WAWS.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the update. I hope in the future that this is allowed as it's a simple check that third party libraries might use.
