Causes a communication object to transition immediately from its current state into the closing state.
This method indicates that any unfinished work should be ignored or ungracefully terminated before returning. The Abort method can be used to cancel any outstanding operations, including outstanding calls to Close.
To gracefully transition a CommunicationObject from any state other than Closed into the Closed state, call Close or one of its asynchronous versions, BeginClose.
