RemoteEndpointMessageProperty Class

Makes available the client IP address and port number associated with the remote endpoint from which a message was sent.


Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public sealed class RemoteEndpointMessageProperty

The RemoteEndpointMessageProperty type exposes the following members.

Public methodRemoteEndpointMessagePropertyInitializes a new instance of the RemoteEndpointMessageProperty class for a specified IP address and port that identify the client from which the message was sent.

Public propertyAddressGets the IP address of the client from which the message was sent.
Public propertyStatic memberNameReturns the string "System.ServiceModel.Channels.RemoteEndpointMessageProperty".
Public propertyPortGets the port number of the client from which the message was sent.

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 a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The property is added to each incoming message to a service through both the HTTP and TCP transports.

The property is not present on messages received through either a named pipes or MSMQ transport.

Availability of the property when using HTTP hosted in IIS depends on having a currently active request.  Therefore, this property is not available after the request has completed, such as when performing a one-way receive.

The IP address and port number are that of the node from which the message was received. If a message goes through a relay or proxy, the IP address and port number of the respective relay or proxy is the one attached to the message by this property.

Be aware that the IP address and port could be spoofed by an attacker and thus should not be relied upon for security sensitive authentication or authorization unless additional application specific logic is added.
