A IServerFormatterSinkProvider creates server formatter sinks for the server channel through which remoting messages flow.

To use a <formatter> tag instead of a <provider> tag within a configuration file, the server channel sink provider must implement the IClientFormatterSinkProvider interface instead of IClientChannelSinkProvider. For additional information about remoting configuration, see Channel and Formatter Configuration Properties and Remoting Settings Schema.

Some formatter sink implementations use run-time formatters (BinaryFormatter and SoapFormatter). Other implementations can use their own means to transform the channel message into the stream. On the return journey, the formatter sink will transform the message stream back into the channel message elements (return message).
