How to C# Socket Programming using Visual Studio.Net

Learn step by step network programming using C#.Net socket, remoting, WCF and SignalR technology from lots of source code and description. All source code download link available at end of the blog post.

File Transfer using C# .Net Socket Programming 2/3


Phase 3, Break communication channel and release resources: When last slice of byte data saved at server, client and server close the socket object and release all resource like file stream, socket object etc.

By that way a file transferred from client to server. But there has no way to call a client from server and send file. My example describe how to send file from client to server but can you imagine how opposite done? Yes if you able learn client to server data transfer properly then it is very easy. Try your self first, if failed then try it again and continue at least three times, then you will able to do it. But….but again failed then ask me I will help you about it :-).
