System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp Namespace

The System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp namespace contains channels that use the TCP protocol to transport messages and objects to and from remote locations. By default, the TCP channels encode objects and method calls in binary format for transmission, but other encoding and decoding formatter sinks can be specified in the configuration properties of a channel. One of the most important classes of the System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp namespace is the TcpChannel class.

Remarks

The TcpChannel class combines the TcpClientChannel class and the TcpServerChannel class, and can be used to both receive and send messages using the TCP protocol.
