By default, multiple clients can use a specific port; however, only one of the clients can perform operations on the network traffic sent to the port. You can use the property to prevent multiple clients from using a specific port.
This property must be set before the underlying socket is bound to a client port. If you call Connect, BeginConnect, TcpClient(IPEndPoint), or TcpClient(String, Int32), the client port is bound as a side effect of the method, and you cannot subsequently set the property
