Property Value

One of the AddressFamily values.

AddressFamily specifies the addressing scheme that an instance of the Socket class can use. This property is read-only and is set when the Socket is created.

The following code example displays the AddressFamily, SocketType, and ProtocolType to the console.

Socket s = new Socket (lep.Address.AddressFamily, SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp);

//Using the AddressFamily, SocketType, and ProtocolType properties.
Console.WriteLine ("I just set the following properties of socket: " + "Address Family = " + s.AddressFamily.ToString () + "\nSocketType = " + s.SocketType.ToString () + "\nProtocolType = " + s.ProtocolType.ToString ());


Socket s = new Socket(lep.get_Address().get_AddressFamily(), 
    SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp);
//Using the AddressFamily, SocketType, and ProtocolType properties.
Console.WriteLine("I just set the following properties of socket: " 
    + "Address Family = " + s.get_AddressFamily().ToString() 
    + "\nSocketType = " + s.get_SocketType().ToString() 
    + "\nProtocolType = " + s.get_ProtocolType().ToString());
