If the calling peer is not subscribed to the PeerContact associated with the specified PeerEndPoint the RefreshData method must be called prior to calling this method.

While the caller is not required to sign-in to the collaboration infrastructure for this method to complete successfully, a successful call to RefreshData or one of the Subscribe methods must have been completed while the caller was previously signed in.

Notes to Callers:

Additional overloads are defined on the Peer class instead of the subclasses PeerContact and PeerNearMe.

Calling this method requires a PermissionState of Unrestricted. This state is created when the peer collaboration session begins.
