            // ServicePoint instance is created.
            Console.WriteLine ("Sleeping for 2 sec.");
            Thread.Sleep (2000);
            try

                res = (HttpWebResponse)req.GetResponse ();
                Console.WriteLine ("Connected.\n");

                ServicePoint currentServicePoint = req.ServicePoint;

                // Display new service point properties. 
                int currentHashCode = currentServicePoint.GetHashCode ();

                Console.WriteLine ("New service point hashcode: " + currentHashCode);
                Console.WriteLine ("New service point max idle time: " + currentServicePoint.MaxIdleTime);
                Console.WriteLine ("New service point is idle since " + currentServicePoint.IdleSince );

                // Check that a new ServicePoint instance has been created. 
                if (hashCode == currentHashCode)
                    Console.WriteLine ("Service point reused.");
