Child Element

Element Description
<channel> Describes the channel that the application uses to communicate with remote objects. Occurs one or more times in the <channels> element.

Remarks

Channels can be registered only in application configuration files.

Example

The following configuration file declares the location of a remote type for a client application and uses the <channels> instance element to specify to the .NET Remoting system that it should locate an appropriate port from which to connect to the server object, and that it should use the default HttpChannel.

<configuration>
   <system.runtime.remoting>
      <application>
         <client>
            <wellknown 
               type="RemoteType, RemoteAssembly"
               url="http://computername:8080/RemoteType.rem"
            />
         </client>
         <channels>
            <channel 
               ref="http" 
               port="0"
            />
         </channels>
      </application>
   </system.runtime.remoting>
</configuration>
