SocketAddress^ serializeEndpoint( IPEndPoint^ endpoint )
   // Serialize IPEndPoint details to a SocketAddress instance.
   SocketAddress^ socketAddress = endpoint->Serialize();

   // Display the serialized endpoint information.
   Console::WriteLine( "Endpoint.Serialize() : {0}", socketAddress );
   Console::WriteLine( "Socket->Family : {0}", socketAddress->Family );
   Console::WriteLine( "Socket->Size : {0}", socketAddress->Size );
