Closes the socket connection to a client.

Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public void Close()

This method terminates the connection to the client in an abrupt manner and is not intended for normal HTTP request processing. The method sends a reset packet to the client, which can cause response data that is buffered on the server, the client, or somewhere in between to be dropped.

However, typically you should call CompleteRequest instead if you want to jump ahead to the EndRequest event and send a response to the client.
