SslStream.WriteTimeout Property

Gets or sets the amount of time a write operation blocks waiting for data.

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

public override int WriteTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
A Int32 that specifies the amount of time that elapses before a synchronous write operation fails.

This property returns the value returned by invoking WriteTimeout on the underlying stream. For set operations, the specified value sets the WriteTimeout value on the underlying stream.

If the underlying stream is a NetworkStream, WriteTimeout is in milliseconds and is set to Infinite by default so that write operations do not timeout.

The following code example demonstrates setting the value of this property.

static void ProcessClient (TcpClient client)
{
    // A client has connected. Create the  
    // SslStream using the client's network stream.
    SslStream sslStream = new SslStream(
        client.GetStream(), false);
    // Authenticate the server but don't require the client to authenticate. 
    try 
    {
        sslStream.AuthenticateAsServer(serverCertificate, 
            false, SslProtocols.Tls, true);
        // Display the properties and settings for the authenticated stream.
        DisplaySecurityLevel(sslStream);
        DisplaySecurityServices(sslStream);
        DisplayCertificateInformation(sslStream);
        DisplayStreamProperties(sslStream);

        // Set timeouts for the read and write to 5 seconds.
        sslStream.ReadTimeout = 5000;
        sslStream.WriteTimeout = 5000;
        // Read a message from the client.   
        Console.WriteLine("Waiting for client message...");
        string messageData = ReadMessage(sslStream);
        Console.WriteLine("Received: {0}", messageData);

        // Write a message to the client. 
        byte[] message = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("Hello from the server.<EOF>");
        Console.WriteLine("Sending hello message.");
        sslStream.Write(message);
    }
    catch (AuthenticationException e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}", e.Message);
        if (e.InnerException != null)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Inner exception: {0}", e.InnerException.Message);
        }
        Console.WriteLine ("Authentication failed - closing the connection.");
        sslStream.Close();
        client.Close();
        return;
    }
    finally
    {
        // The client stream will be closed with the sslStream 
        // because we specified this behavior when creating 
        // the sslStream.
        sslStream.Close();
        client.Close();
    }
}
