The device identifier.


The name of the service to connect to.

Exception typeCondition


Either the device identifier or the service name is invalid.

After you create a connection to a device with an IrDAEndPoint, you can monitor infrared communications from that device by using an IrDAListener.

The following code example uses an IrDAEndPoint to create a connection to a device, as selected from a list box of remote participating devices, and then uses an IrDAListener to listen for infrared communications from the remote device. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the IrDAClient class.

// Create a connection, with the IrDAEndPoint class,
// for the selected device in the list box.
// Start listening for incoming requests from
// that device with an IrDAListener object.
    int i = listBox1.SelectedIndex;
    irEndP = new IrDAEndPoint(irDevices[i].DeviceID,
    irListen = new IrDAListener(irEndP);
catch(SocketException exSoc)
    MessageBox.Show("Couldn't listen on service "
        + irServiceName + ": "
        + exSoc.ErrorCode);
