Namespace:   System.Net.Security
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public virtual void AuthenticateAsServer()

Exception Condition
AuthenticationException

The authentication failed. You can use this object to retry the authentication.

InvalidCredentialException

The authentication failed. You can use this object to retry the authentication.

ObjectDisposedException

This object has been closed.

NotSupportedException

Windows 95 and Windows 98 are not supported.

The authentication uses the server's DefaultCredentials. No Service Principal Name (SPN) is specified for the server. The impersonation level is Identification, and the security level is EncryptAndSign.

When authentication succeeds, you must check the IsEncrypted and IsSigned properties to determine what security services are used by the NegotiateStream. Check the IsMutuallyAuthenticated property to determine whether mutual authentication occurred.

This method blocks until the operation completes. To prevent blocking until the operation completes, use one of the BeginAuthenticateAsServer method overloads.

If the authentication fails, you receive an AuthenticationException or an InvalidCredentialException. In this case, you can retry the authentication with a different credential.

Win9xFamily

The AuthenticateAsServer method is not supported.
