AHostShort - Network byte order for the numeric value.

HostToNetwork is an overloaded function that implements the methods used to access the htons() and htonl() APIs for the protocol stack implementation. 

HostToNetwork is used to convert the numeric value in AValue from its platform-specific byte order to its Network byte order (Big-Endian). 

The return value is the numeric value in AValue converted to its Network byte order representation. 

HostToNetwork uses IPAddress.HostToNetworkOrder to convert the value.
