NetPeerTcpBinding Class

Provides a secure binding for peer-to-peer network applications.

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

public ref class NetPeerTcpBinding : public Binding, 

The NetPeerTcpBinding binding provides support for the creation of peer networking applications that use a TCP-level peer-to-peer mesh infrastructure.

Each PeerNode instance can host multiple peer channels defined with this binding type. Channel factories produced using a configured instance of this type can be used to generate peer channels. A peer channel factory can produce peer channels that are input-only (implements IInputChannel), output-only (implements IOutputChannel), and duplex (implements IDuplexChannel).

This is one of the standard bindings provided by the Windows Communication Framework (WCF). It can be used in imperative code or specified in the corresponding XML configuration file for the application. The recommended procedure is to define the binding using configuration values and not to use a code-based approach, except in certain advanced scenarios where configuration values must be set as a service is initialized.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
