Example

The following configuration file declares lifetime information for all remote types hosted by a server application domain, declares for publication a server-activated (well-known) remote type, specifies that the default HttpChannel should listen on port 8080, and indicates that the .NET Remoting system should load all specified types (in this case, both the HttpChannel and the ServerActivatedType) when the host application starts.

<configuration>
   <system.runtime.remoting>
      <application>
         <lifetime
            leaseTime="10S"
            sponsorshipTimeout="0S"
            renewOnCallTime="5S"
            leaseManagerPollTime="5S"
         />
         <service>
            <wellknown 
               type="ServerActivatedType, RemoteAssembly" 
               objectUri="ServerType.rem" 
               mode="Singleton" 
            />
         </service>
      <channels>
         <channel port="8080" ref="http"/>
      </channels>
      </application>
      <debug loadTypes="true"/>
   </system.runtime.remoting>
</configuration>
