ServicePointManager.ReusePort Property

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Setting this property value to true causes all outbound TCP connections from HttpWebRequest to use the native socket option SO_REUSE_UNICASTPORT on the socket. This causes the underlying outgoing ports to be shared. This is useful for scenarios where a large number of outgoing connections are made in a short time, and the app risks running out of ports.
