IChannelListener Interface

Defines the interface that must be implemented by a channel listener to accept channels.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public interface IChannelListener : ICommunicationObject

The IChannelListener interface represents the base interface for channel listeners.

Channel listeners and their associated channels are generally used by services that receive communications initiated by clients. Channel factories that implement the IChannelFactory interface, by contrast, provide the mechanisms used to create the channels through which communication with a service is initiated.
