PeerNameRegistration Class

Registers a PeerName in a Cloud or set of clouds.

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

public class PeerNameRegistration : IDisposable, 

Registration creates (or updates) all the information that is associated with a PeerName in a peer cloud or clouds.

It is possible to have multiple PeerNameRegistration objects for the same peer name. In such a case, if the peer name is secured, each instance represents PeerNameRegistration in a different cloud. However, if the peer name is not secured, it can be registered in the same cloud multiple times, providing that each registration is from a different process.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
