SocketException

ObjectDisposedException

TcpClient is closed.

Call this method to establish a synchronous remote host connection to the specified host name and port number. The Connect method will block until it either connects or fails. After connecting with the remote host, use the GetStream method to obtain the underlying NetworkStream. Use this NetworkStream to send and receive data.

NoteNote:

If you receive a SocketException, use SocketException.ErrorCode to obtain the specific error code. After you have obtained this code, you can refer to the Windows Sockets version 2 API error code documentation in MSDN for a detailed description of the error.

NoteNote:

This member outputs trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing.

The following code example uses the host name and port number to connect with a remote host.

//Uses a host name and port number to establish a socket connection.
TcpClient tcpClient = new TcpClient ();
tcpClient.Connect ("www.contoso.com", 11002);


//Uses a host name and port number to establish a socket connection.
TcpClient tcpClient = new TcpClient();
tcpClient.Connect("www.contoso.com", 11002);
