Gets the remote endpoint.
Assembly: System.Net (in System.Net.dll)
For a connection-oriented protocol, the property gets the EndPoint that contains the remote IP address and port number to which the Socket is connected. You must cast this EndPoint to an IPEndPoint or DnsEndPoint, depending on the type of EndPoint used to connect, before retrieving any information. You can then access the Host property to retrieve the remote host, and the Port property to retrieve the remote port number. IPAddress information for the is only available if a IPEndPoint was used to connect.
The is set after a call to ConnectAsync. If you try to access this property earlier, will throw a SocketException. If you receive a SocketException, use the SocketException.ErrorCode property to obtain the specific error code. After you have obtained this code, refer to the Windows Sockets version 2 API error code documentation in the MSDN library for a detailed description of the error.
