Assembly:  System.Runtime.Remoting (in System.Runtime.Remoting.dll)

public TcpServerChannel(
	IDictionary properties,
	IServerChannelSinkProvider sinkProvider


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

A IDictionary collection specifying values for configuration properties to be used by the channel.

If the server computer is running Windows 95/98/Me, the TcpServerChannel cannot be specified as secure.

If you do not require sink functionality, set the sinkProvider parameter to null.

The following code example shows the use of this constructor to create a TcpServerChannel object with specific configuration properties.

// Specify server channel properties.
IDictionary dict = new Hashtable();
dict["port"] = 9090;
dict["authenticationMode"] = "IdentifyCallers";

// Set up a server channel.
TcpServerChannel serverChannel = new TcpServerChannel(dict, null);
ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(serverChannel, false);
