Specifies the values that define a Peer object.
Assembly: System.Net (in System.Net.dll)
A is a set of nodes that can communicate with each other through the network. Cloud, peer mesh, and peer-to-peer graph are synonymous. A single peer or node may be connected to more than one cloud.
Communication between nodes should never cross from one cloud to another. A instance is uniquely identified by its name, which is case-sensitive.
Clouds are tied very closely to network interfaces. On a multi-homed machine with two network cards attached to different subnets, three clouds will be returned: one for each of the link local addresses per interface, and a single global scope cloud.
