Socket Constructor (SocketInformation)

Initializes a new instance of the Socket class using the specified value returned from DuplicateAndClose.

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

public Socket(
	SocketInformation socketInformation
)

Parameters

socketInformation
Type: System.Net.Sockets.SocketInformation
The socket information returned by DuplicateAndClose.

If you call the Socket constructor multiple times with the same byte array as the argument for each call, you will create multiple managed Sockets with the same underlying socket. This practice is strongly discouraged.
