RemotingConfiguration.Configure Method (String, Boolean)

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

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.RemotingConfiguration)]
public static void Configure(
	string filename,
	bool ensureSecurity


Type: System.String

The name of the remoting configuration file. Can be null.

If set to true security is required. If set to false, security is not required but still may be used.

For configuration file syntax, see Remoting Settings Schema.


Marshal-by-reference objects (MBRs) do not reside in memory forever. Instead, unless the type overrides MarshalByRefObject.InitializeLifetimeService to control its own lifetime policies, each MBR has a finite lifetime before the .NET Framework remoting system begins the process of deleting it and reclaiming the memory. For more information, see Lifetime Leases.
