ObjectDisposedException

The Socket has been closed.

The Nagle algorithm reduces network traffic by causing the socket to buffer packets for up to 200 milliseconds and then combines and sends them in one packet

The majority of network applications should use the Nagle algorithm.

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.
