  • I suppose you could manually construct this using a socket?

    What specifically are you trying to accomplish?

  • This is my best option, but in order to do that I'd need to retrieve the DNS configuration from the device: the address of the DNS server and the domain name. As far as I understand this information is not available to retrieve. 

    In general when writing (in my case porting) VoIP application while using such protocols as SIP, MSRP, STUN and TURN the correspondent standards require to perform NAPTR & SRV DNS queries.

  • You should be able to get DNS server addresses using the DhcpRequestParams / Dhcpv6RequestParams APIs, which are accessible to Windows store apps.
