The purpose of this article is to show you how you can do socket programming in C#. This article assumes some familiarity with the socket programming, though you need not to be expert in socket programming. There are several flavors to socket programming - like client side , server side , blocking or synchronous , non-blocking or asynchronous etc.
With all these flavors in mind , I have decided to break this subject into two parts. In the part 1 I will start with the client side blocking socket. Later on in the second part I will show you how to create server side and non-blocking.
