C# Networking APIs

C# Networking APIs

I highly suggest you look into the Windows Communication Foundation. It comes with any version of .NET 3.0 or greater, so if youre using VS 2008, youve got all you need.

It abstracts a heck of a lot of the details for networking, providing you with a very simple programming API. Even protocol details are abstracted away, and there are a ton of protocols to chose from already built in.

Hands down the best way to communicate across a network.

Check out the System.Net and System.Net.Sockets namespaces in the .NET framework libraries. Eat your heart out.

Though I may have misunderstood your meaning of networking API.

C# Networking APIs

Networking is a very, very, very broad term. You might have more luck if you put some limits in your query, such as I am looking for sample code for socket programming under c#. Still broad, but much more answerable.

C# has a lot of networking functionality built into the .NET framework., mostly in the System.Net namespace. I have found very few things that require using an external library or the windows networking api. You might check out the System.Net namespace and see if it has what you needs, otherwise maybe clarify what you are looking for.
