TcpClient.Connect Method (IPEndPoint)
Connects the client to a remote TCP host using the specified remote network endpoint.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
Call this method to establish a synchronous remote host connection to the specified IPEndPoint. Before you call Connect you must create an instance of the IPEndPoint class using an IP address and a port number. Use this IPEndPoint as the remoteEP parameter. 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.
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.
This member outputs trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing
