CSharp Communication Tutorial

The Microsoft .NET framework offers two namespaces, namely System.Net and System.Net.Sockets, which provide a managed implementation of Internet protocols. These protocols enable applications to send and receive data over the Internet. Network programming in the Windows environment can be achieved using sockets, allowing peer-to-peer Microsoft Windows applications to act as both servers and clients for data exchange.

System.Net classes

The System.Net classes offer functionalities that are similar to the Microsoft WinInet API. They enable communication between classes and other applications using various Internet protocols such as Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP), and Socket. These protocols facilitate data transfer and communication between different systems. By exploring the chapters ahead, you can gain a deeper understanding of important classes and their practical applications in C# programming.
