 IPHostEntry ipHostInfo = Dns.GetHostEntry(Dns.GetHostName());
 IPAddress ipAddress = ipHostInfo.AddressList[0];
 // Client and server use port 11000. 
 IPEndPoint remoteEP = new IPEndPoint(ipAddress,11000);
 // Create a TCP/IP socket.
TcpClient client = new TcpClient();
 // Connect the socket to the remote endpoint.
 Console.WriteLine("Client connected to {0}.",
 // Ensure the client does not close when there is 
 // still data to be sent to the server.
 client.LingerState = (new LingerOption(true,0));
 // Request authentication.
 NetworkStream clientStream = client.GetStream();
 NegotiateStream authStream = new NegotiateStream(clientStream); 
 // Request authentication for the client only (no mutual authentication).
 // Authenicate using the client's default credetials.
 // Permit the server to impersonate the client to access resources on the server only.
