.NET Framework 3.0
Handles the server side of an authentication for a client-server connection.
|NegotiateStream.AuthenticateAsServer ()||Called by servers to authenticate the client, and optionally the server, in a client-server connection.|
|NegotiateStream.AuthenticateAsServer (NetworkCredential, ProtectionLevel, TokenImpersonationLevel)||Called by servers to authenticate the client, and optionally the server, in a client-server connection. The authentication process uses the specified server credentials and authentication options.|
These methods block while the authentication is in progress. To prevent the application from blocking while waiting for the authentication to complete, use the BeginAuthenticateAsServer method.
