SocketPermission.ConnectList Property

Gets a list of EndpointPermission instances that identifies the endpoints that can be connected to under this permission instance.

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

public IEnumerator ConnectList { get; }
/** @property */
public IEnumerator get_ConnectList ()

public function get ConnectList () : IEnumerator

Not applicable.

Property Value

An instance that implements the IEnumerator interface that contains EndpointPermission instances.

The following example uses the ConnectList property to return a list of endpoints to which connection privileges are granted.
