The ReceiveTimeout property determines the amount of time that the Read method will block until it is able to receive data. This time is measured in milliseconds. If the time-out expires before Read successfully completes, TcpClient throws a IOException. There is no time-out by default.
// Sets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property.
tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout = 5000;
// Gets the receive time out using the ReceiveTimeout public property. if (tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout == 5000)
Console.WriteLine ("The receive time out limit was successfully set " + tcpClient.ReceiveTimeout.ToString ());
