Closes the Socket connection and releases all associated resources.

public void Close()

The Close method closes the remote host connection and releases all managed and unmanaged resources associated with the Socket. Upon closing, the Connected property is set to false.

For connection-oriented protocols, it is recommended that you call Shutdown before calling the Close method. This ensures that all data is sent and received on the connected socket before it is closed.
