IChannelReceiver Interface


Provides required functions and properties for the receiver channels.

Namespace:   System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Public Interface IChannelReceiver
	Inherits IChannel


Gets the channel-specific data.


Gets the name of the channel.(Inherited from IChannel.)


Gets the priority of the channel.(Inherited from IChannel.)


Returns an array of all the URLs for a URI.

System_CAPS_pubmethodParse(String, String)

Returns the object URI as an out parameter, and the URI of the current channel as the return value.(Inherited from IChannel.)


Instructs the current channel to start listening for requests.


Instructs the current channel to stop listening for requests.

The receiving side of channels must expose the IChannelReceiver interface.
