Enabling Peer to Peer Services

Enabling Peer to Peer Services

Peer-to-peer messaging services are a feature of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). Such services are created using the NetPeerTcpBinding in code, or the netPeerTcpBinding element in a configuration file. The peer-to-peer message model depends on the presence of a resolver. The resolver registers participants in a mesh, and functions as a central point for all messaging operations. You can create a custom resolver (see Peer Channel Custom Peer Resolver), or use the Windows peer-to-peer resolver. To use the Windows resolver on, you must install it.

To install the Windows peer-to-peer resolver

  1. On the Start menu, click Control Panel.

  2. Click Add or Remove Programs.

  3. Click Add a Program.

  4. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.

  5. In the Windows Components Wizard, check the Networking Services box and click Details.

  6. In the Networking Services dialog window, check the Peer-to-Peer box.

  7. Click OK.

  8. Click Next to install the component.

  9. Click Finish to complete the installation.
