Chapter 9. Networking

The FCL includes a number of types that make accessing networked resources easy. Offering different levels of abstraction, these types allow an application to ignore much of the detail normally required to access networked resources while retaining a high degree of control.

This chapter describes the core networking support in the FCL, and provides numerous examples leveraging the predefined classes. The types mentioned in this section all exist in the System.Net and System.Net.Sockets namespaces.
