Windows UDP Socket Buffer (Maximum)

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
I am receiving on a socket (C#) and setting the UDP buffer size to br 10 Mb - and creating 16 such sockets. But I see missed UDP packets (they have  a unique seq number in them). When I read back "ReceiveBufferSize" it return the size I set it to - 10Mb.   My question is - what is the maximum internal socket buffer size allowed by Windows (Win Server 2008) ?   Wierdly when I also start Netmon in the background on the receiving machine - I do not see any missed packets.   Does Netmon modify internal windows socket buffers (increase them) - how can I go about doing this with my app ?   Thanks

How to setup windows server 2008 to enable socket communication?

I wrote a simple socket program, which listens to the 82 port, then receives and sends data through it. I tested the program on my local machine and it works fine, but after I published the program onto my windows server 2008, it does not work anymore. I guess it should be the firewall causing the problem, so I added rules to allow 82 port for both in and out bound, and I also add my application to the allowed program list for passing firewall, but still doesn't work, how could I solve it?   The windows server 2008 machine has a public network IP address, while my workstation is in a local network without public IP address, I connect to server 2008 through a router which has a public IP address. Is that the problem?   thanks! Regards! directfriends.net

Windows 7 socket bind behavior difference from XP/Server 2003, with reuse address socket option (WSA


I have two processes that are both listening to UDP packets and can run on the same PC.  One process binds a socket to one NIC address with port 18246.  The other process has two Socket objects, one for sending on port 18246 and one for listening on port 18246.  Both of these sockets are created, have the SO_REUSEADDR socket option set.  Bind is called for a single IP Endpoint for a common local NIC address, but a different one than used by the above app.

Under Windows XP and server 2003, both processes can bind regardless of order of startup.

Under Windows 7, if the process with only one socket starts first, the second process fails with WSAEACCES 10013 error with the second socket bind.

I wrote a sample C# app with the following method that fails when running under Windows 7 x86 and x64.  The above failure occurs when the sockets are in separate processes, but a single process using the same socket interaction also fails.  The below method is called with two IPV4 addresses that are assigned to local Network adapters on the PC.

Clear the socket buffer

I am working with a socket code in C#
The problem is that clients get's randomly disconnected from the server.
Is the right thing to do to clear the buffer?
How do I clear the buffer?

Windows PGM socket access error with non-admin account




I'm trying to use PGM sockets to send data. I can listen and receive data fine from a PGM socket using a non-admin account, but when I try to create a socket to send data I get an exception at this step:

socket.Bind(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any, 0));

The exception is:

An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions

Note that if I run the same code under an admin account it works fine. Is there a way to create a sender PGM socket without running under an admin account?

Maximum size of a WriteableBitmap (System.Windows.Media.Imaging.WritableBitmap)

I'm trying to find out the size limits on the WPF WritableBitmap class (ie. System.Windows.Media.Imaging.WritableBitmap, not the Silverlight class with the same name).
In the help for the BitmapSource base class it says:
"The maximum height and width of an image is 2^16 pixels at 32 bits per channel * 4 channels. The maximum size of a BitmapSource is 2^32 bytes (64 gigabytes) and the maximum image size is four gigapixels."
1. By my calculation, 2^32 bytes is 4 Gigabytes, not 64 Gigabytes. So is the size limit 2^32 (4 Gigabytes) or 64 Gigabytes (2^36)? 
2. Are the limits different on 32 and 64 bit versions of the OS?
3. Do these size limits also apply to the derived WriteableBitmap class, or are there further constraints based on available / addressable system memory and/or video (texture) memory?
Thanks in adva

windows latency overhead between socket.send to packet out of box?


What is the latency caused by windows OS from the time a C# application does Socket.Send to the point when the packet actually leaves the machine?

We can assume the NIC used is top of the line 1Gig and there is very little traffic in and out of machine.

I'd like to know the theoretical and/or real numbers on Vista and if possible, pre vista.



I posted this question in another section but did'nt get much attention, this seems like a more relevant group to post my question.

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Getting Started with Windows Communication Foundation

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a unified framework for rapidly building service-oriented applications that makes it easy to build and consume secure, reliable, and transacted Web services. It unifies the capabilities in ASMX, WSE, Remoting, COM+, and MSMQ; therefore developers need to learn only one programming model.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Windows Presentation Foundation and your architecture

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is a new client user interface technology that ships as part of the .NET 3.0 Framework. Architects have long faced the challenge of selecting an appropriate presentation tier technology for their applications. In recent times, if you are developing for the Windows platform, it was at least a fairly short list. You either built a web application, a smart client, a mobile device, or some combination of those depending on your target audience. Which one you picked gave you a fairly short list of practical options in the .NET space - ASP.NET, Windows Forms, and Compact Framework respectively.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

How to programmatically add controls to Windows forms at run time by using Visual C#
