SocketPermission.AllPorts Field

Defines a constant that represents all ports.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public const int AllPorts

This field is read-only. The value of this field is -1.

The following example uses the AllPorts property to provide connection permissions to all of the resources ports.

// <Snippet6>
		SocketPermission socketPermission1 = new SocketPermission(PermissionState.Unrestricted);

		// Create a 'SocketPermission' object for two ip addresses.
		SocketPermission socketPermission2 = new SocketPermission(PermissionState.None);
		SecurityElement securityElement1 = socketPermission2.ToXml();
		// 'SocketPermission' object for 'Connect' permission
		SecurityElement securityElement2 = new SecurityElement("ConnectAccess");
		// Format to specify ip address are <ip-address>#<port>#<transport-type> 
		// First 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and  
      // for 'All'ports for the ip-address.
		SecurityElement securityElement3 = new SecurityElement("URI", "");
		// Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and  
      // for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
		SecurityElement securityElement4 = new SecurityElement("URI", "");
	   // Obtain a 'SocketPermission' object using 'FromXml' method.

		Console.WriteLine("\nDisplays the result of FromXml method : \n");

		// Create another 'SocketPermission' object with two ip addresses. 
		// First 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.
		SocketPermission socketPermission3 = 
						new SocketPermission(NetworkAccess.Connect,

	   // Second 'SocketPermission' ip-address is '' for 'All' transport types and for 'All' ports for the ip-address.

		Console.WriteLine("Displays the result of AddPermission method : \n");

	   // Find the intersection between two 'SocketPermission' objects.
		socketPermission1 = (SocketPermission)socketPermission2.Intersect(socketPermission3);

		Console.WriteLine("Displays the result of Intersect method :\n ");

		// Demand that the calling method have the requsite socket permission.
// </Snippet3>
