Provides a channel implementation that uses the IPC protocol to transmit messages.

System.Object
  System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Ipc.IpcChannel

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

type IpcChannel =  
    class 
        interface IChannelReceiver 
        interface IChannel 
        interface IChannelSender 
        interface ISecurableChannel 
    end

The IpcChannel type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodIpcChannel()Initializes a new instance of the IpcChannel class, activating only a client channel, and not a server channel.
Public methodIpcChannel(String)Initializes a new instance of the IpcChannel class with a server channel that listens on the specified IPC port.
Public methodIpcChannel(IDictionary, IClientChannelSinkProvider, IServerChannelSinkProvider)Initializes a new instance of the IpcChannel class with the specified configuration properties and sinks.
Public methodIpcChannel(IDictionary, IClientChannelSinkProvider, IServerChannelSinkProvider, CommonSecurityDescriptor)Initializes a new instance of the IpcChannel class with the specified configuration properties and sinks.

  NameDescription

Public propertyChannelNameGets the name of the current channel.
Public propertyChannelPriorityGets the priority of the current channel.
Public propertyIsSecuredGets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether the current channel is secure.

  NameDescription
Public methodCreateMessageSinkReturns a channel message sink that delivers messages to the specified URL or channel data object.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetUrlsForUriReturns an array of all the URLs for an object with the specified URI, hosted on the current IpcChannel.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodParseExtracts the channel URI and the remote well-known object URI from the specified URL.
Public methodStartListeningInstructs the current channel to start listening for requests.
Public methodStopListeningInstructs the current channel to stop listening for requests.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Channels are used by the.NET Framework remoting infrastructure to transport remote calls. When a client calls a remote object, the call is serialized into a message that is sent by a client channel and received by a server channel. After the message is received, it is deserialized and processed. Any returned values are transmitted by the server channel and received by the client channel.

The IpcChannel class is a convenience class combining the functionality of the IpcClientChannel class and the IpcServerChannel class.

Caution noteCaution

When setting the exclusiveAddressUse property to false in the properties argument, several IpcServerChannel objects can be registered for the same named pipe. In such a case requests can go to any of the channels registered. This setting is considered secure only if ALCs are also used.

The following code example shows how to use a IpcChannel to set up a remoting server and its client. The example contains three parts:

  • A server

  • A client

  • A remote object used by the server and the client.

The following code example shows a server.
