public Task OpenAsync()

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task
A task representing the asynchronous operation.

After calling OpenAsync, State must return Connecting until the returned Task is completed. Then, if the connection was successful, State must return Open. If the connection fails, State must return Closed.
