Servers use realms to partition protected resources; each partition can have its own authentication scheme and/or authorization database. Realms are used only for basic and digest authentication. After a client successfully authenticates, the authentication is valid for all resources in a given realm. For a detailed description of realms, see RFC 2617 at http://www.ietf.org.

An instance of HttpListener has only one associated realm.

The following code example demonstrates setting the Realm property.

public static void ConfigureListener1(HttpListener listener)
{
    // Specify an authentication realm.
    listener.Realm = "ExampleRealm";
}

public static void ConfigureListener1(HttpListener listener)
{
    // Specify an authentication realm.
    listener.set_Realm("ExampleRealm");
} //ConfigureListener1
