Socket.IsBound Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the Socket is bound to a specific local port.

Namespace:  System.Net.Sockets
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

member IsBound : bool with get

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Socket is bound to a local port; otherwise, false.

A socket is considered bound to a local port if it is explicitly bound by calling the Bind method, or implicitly bound by calling members like Connect, SendTo, or ReceiveFrom, which use an ephemeral local port (a free port greater than 1024, selected by the operating system.) Servers use the Bind method to bind to a well-known port so that clients may connect to them.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the IsBound property.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
