Public propertyHostnameGets the DNS host name or IP address of the server that is associated with this endpoint.
Public propertyPortGets the network port number that is associated with this endpoint.
Public propertyTransportGets the transport type that is associated with this endpoint.

Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified Object is equal to the current SocketPermission instance. (Overrides Object::Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular SocketPermission instance. (Overrides Object::GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current EndpointPermission instance. (Overrides Object::ToString().)

The EndpointPermission class defines a network endpoint, including host name, network port number, and transport type used to make the connection.


Avoid creating EndPoint permissions using host names because these names will have to be resolved to IP address, which could block the stack.
