Note: This API is now obsolete.
A client receiver for multicast traffic from any source, also known as Any Source Multicast (ASM) or Internet Standard Multicast (ISM).
Assembly: System.Net (in System.Net.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|MulticastLoopback||Obsolete. Gets or sets a value that specifies whether outgoing multicast packets are delivered to the sending application.|
|ReceiveBufferSize||Obsolete. Gets or sets the size, in bytes, of the receive buffer of the Socket used for multicast receive operations on this instance.|
|SendBufferSize||Obsolete. Gets or sets the size, in bytes, of the send buffer of the Socket used for multicast send operations on this instance.|
|BeginJoinGroup||Obsolete. Binds the socket and begins a join operation to the multicast group to allow datagrams to be received from any group participant.|
|BeginReceiveFromGroup||Obsolete. Begins the operation of receiving a packet from the joined multicast group and invokes the specified callback when a packet has arrived on the group from any sender.|
|BeginSendTo||Obsolete. Begins the operation of sending a unicast packet to the specified destination.|
|BeginSendToGroup||Obsolete. Begins the operation of sending a packet to a joined multicast group and invokes the specified callback when a packet has been sent to the group.|
|BlockSource||Obsolete. Blocks a source so that multicast packets originating from it are no longer received.|
|Dispose||Obsolete. Leaves the multicast group and releases all resources used by the current instance of the class and the underlying the Socket.|
|EndJoinGroup||Obsolete. Completes the asynchronous join group operation to a multicast group.|
|EndReceiveFromGroup||Obsolete. Completes the asynchronous operation of receiving a packet from the joined multicast group and provides the information received.|
|EndSendTo||Obsolete. Completes the operation of sending a unicast packet to the specified destination.|
|EndSendToGroup||Obsolete. Completes the operation of sending a packet to a multicast group.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|UnblockSource||Obsolete. Unblocks a source that was previously blocked by a call to the BlockSource method so that multicast packets originating from it can be received.|
