How can I read/set current IP address from the application?

You can use the Microsoft.SPOT.Net.NetworkInformation.NetworkInterface class to perform these tasks, along with some DHCP and DNS related stuff. Its static GetAllNetworkInterfaces() method returns all the interfaces installed.

How can I convert IP address into long in order to create IPAddress instance?

Let's write a general method for this usual task:
// use like ToIPAddress(192, 168, 1, 1); public static ToIPAddress(byte a, byte b, byte c, byte d) { return new IPAddress(d << 24 | c << 16 | b << 8 | a) }

How can I use PPPoE protocol to get IP address from ISP?

Currently, DHCP is the only dynamic IP assignment mechanism supported.

Any support for secured communication - HTTPS, SSL, TLS, etc. ?

Steve MailletNot in the current version, no. It is something we are looking into.

That means, if you need it, let them know and describe your scenario. More demand increases your chances.
