Async Socket , BeginReceive question .

Hi all ,
with BegeinReceive I can build async method of Socket Class
that Receive the data from the Socket Client .

My question is , if I have this code that create 3 Receive Async Call :

mySocket.BeginR eceive(param1,p aram2,param3... ..);
mySocket.BeginR eceive(param1,p aram2,param3... ...);
mySocket.BeginR eceive(param1,p aram2,param3... ...);


and If the Client Socket send my 3 async Message, what will happened ?

BeginReceive1, that receive message 1 ||| BeginReceive2, that receive message 2 ||| BeginReceive3, that receive message 3

or :
BeginReceive1, that receive Message 1
BeginReceive2, that receive Message 2
BeginReceive3, that receive Message 3

The 3 SendMessage is listen at the same time from server ?

or :

The server listen the Message1 with BeginReceive1,
server listen the Message 2 with BeginReceive2 when BeginReceive1 has finish to listen the Message 1
server listen the Message 3 with BeginReceive3 when BeginReceive 2 has finish to listen the Message 2 .

Thank all ,

dm -

This is somewhat of a trick question. Your last scenario is
correct, the three BeginReceive() methods will "stack up", and process
incoming data serially - one after the other. The first BeginReceive()
method will process whatever data is available on the socket first,
then the second BeginReceive() method will process any remaining data
(or new data on the socket), and finally, the third one will process.

The problem is that there is no control as to which BeginReceive()
method will process what data. TCP is not a message-oriented protocol,
it is stream-oriented. The three messages that are sent are not
guaranteed to be taken out of the socket buffer in the same format by
each of the three BeginReceive() methods that they were sent. Its
quite possible that the first BeginReceive() method will grab all of
message1, plus part of message2, then the second BeginReceive() method
grabs the end of message2 plus all of message3, leaving the last
BeginReceive() method never to complete, waiting for data. This would
make a nightmare situation trying to put all of the data back

It is better to either mark your messages with boundaries or send
the message size before the actual message. That way the other end
knows when each message starts and stops, and can process the received
data properly. Hope this helps out some.

I've written a fair amount of sockets code using the Winsock2 API, but I am having some trouble converting to the .Net Sockets API, specifically asynchronous sockets.

When a client connects my accept function is called, and it is on a separate thread. After I accept the client connection I connect to...

The code below is what I am using to asynchronously get data from a PocketPC device. The data comes in fine in blocks of 1024 bytes but even when I send no data from the PocketPC constant blocks of 1024 with all values set to Null arrive. Other than examine a block of 1024 to see if the entire block is null, is there any other way to determine if , say a chat message "Hi Charlie" has been received completely?

I'm trying to use Async Socket calls to create a tcp server. It goes into the listening correctly, but when I connect, it crashes with the following exception: An unhandled exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in system.dll Additional information: AcceptCallback There is no source code available for the current location. Here's the code. Hopefully someone can help me out.

It appears that System.Random would provide an acceptable means through which to generate a unique value used to identify multiple/concurrent asynchronous tasks.

In this case, the userSuppliedState {really taskId} is of the object type,...
