TcpChannel Constructor (Int32)

TcpChannel Constructor (Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the TcpChannel class with a server channel that listens on the specified port.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp
Assembly:  System.Runtime.Remoting (in System.Runtime.Remoting.dll)

public TcpChannel(
	int port


Type: System.Int32
The port on which the server channel listens.

To request that the remoting system choose an open port on your behalf, specify port 0 (zero). This will create a TcpServerChannel instance to listen for requests on the dynamically assigned port. This is typically done on the client to make sure that a TcpServerChannel is listening for callback methods.

If 0 is passed to the constructor the TcpChannel is instantiated to use a free port.

The following code example demonstrates using this method. To request that an available port be dynamically assigned, set the port parameter to zero.

// Registers the server and waits until the user hits enter.
TcpChannel chan = new TcpChannel(8084);

System.Console.WriteLine("Hit <enter> to exit...");
