Gets the protocol type of the Socket.

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

public ProtocolType ProtocolType { get; }
/** @property */
public ProtocolType get_ProtocolType ()

public function get ProtocolType () : ProtocolType

Property Value

One of the ProtocolType values.

The ProtocolType property is set when the Socket is created, and specifies the protocol used by that Socket.

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());
