This class represents a remote peer.
Assembly: System.Net (in System.Net.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|IsOnline||Gets a value specifying if the is currently 'online'.|
|PeerEndPoints||Gets the PeerEndPointCollection associated with the .|
|SynchronizingObject||When this property value is set, all events not fired as the result of an asynchronous operation will have the associated event handlers called back on the thread that created the specific SynchronizingObject.|
|Dispose()||Releases all resources used by the object.|
|Dispose(Boolean)||Releases the unmanaged resources used by the object and optionally releases the managed resources.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Equals(Peer)||Performs a case-sensitive comparison of the current and the specified peer.|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetObjectData||Populates a SerializationInfo object with the data needed to serialize the target .|
|GetObjects()||Gets the collection of data objects from a local cache.|
|GetObjects(Guid)||Gets the object associated with the supplied Guid from the PeerObjectCollection.|
|GetPresenceInfo||Gets the available presence information for a PeerEndPoint.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Invite()||Sends an invitation to a to start a specific PeerApplication.|
|Invite(PeerApplication, String, Byte)||Sends an invitation to a to start a specific PeerApplication.|
|InviteAsync(Object)||Begins an asynchronous invitation operation which sends an invitation to a to start a specific PeerApplication.|
|InviteAsync(PeerApplication, String, Byte, Object)||Begins an asynchronous invitation operation which sends an invitation to a to start a specific PeerApplication.|
|InviteAsyncCancel||Cancels the invitation that was sent with the InviteAsync method.|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|OnInviteCompleted||Raises the InviteCompleted event.|
|ToString||Returns a String representing the PeerName associated with the . (Overrides Object.ToString().)|
The purpose of the abstract class is to provide a common base class definition that can be shared by derived classes such as PeerNearMe and PeerContact. It cannot be directly constructed, since it is abstract. Developers should use the subclasses PeerNearMe or PeerContact instead.
"Calling peer" and "remote peer" are commonly synonymous. Calling peer does not refer to the application calling a given method.
