private static void displayEndpointInfo(IPEndPoint endpoint)
{
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.Address : " + endpoint.Address);
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.AddressFamily : " + endpoint.AddressFamily);
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.Port : " + endpoint.Port);
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.ToString() : " + endpoint.ToString());

  Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.");
  Console.ReadLine();
}

private static void DisplayEndpointInfo(IPEndPoint endpoint)
{
    Console.WriteLine(("Endpoint.Address : " + endpoint.get_Address()));
    Console.WriteLine(("Endpoint.AddressFamily : " 
        + endpoint.get_AddressFamily()));
    Console.WriteLine(("Endpoint.Port : " + endpoint.get_Port()));
    Console.WriteLine(("Endpoint.ToString() : " 
        + endpoint.ToString()));
    Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.");
