Authentication is already in progress.

PlatformNotSupportedException

The AuthenticateAsServer method is not supported on Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millennium.

This method authenticates using Default. The certificate revocation list is not checked during authentication. The client is not required to provide a certificate for authentication.

This method blocks until the operation completes. To prevent blocking until the operation completes, use one of the BeginAuthenticateAsServer method overloads.

If the authentication fails, you receive a AuthenticationException, and this SslStream is no longer useable. You should close this object and remove all references to it so that it can be collected by the garbage collector.

Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition Platform Note: The AuthenticateAsServer method is not supported.

Windows 98, Windows 2000 SP4, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows XP SP2, Windows XP Starter Edition
