c# - file transfer - using sockets

15 New Member
I need help coding a file transfer in C#. It would be over TCP/IP using sockets...
most of the solutions i have come across, they use networkstream
and i have read online that there is no need to use networkstream with c# sockets... so how do I do it?
also, do I need to worry about serialization/deserialization ?
any help would be greatly appreciated

Well, what is your trouble then?

Create your server/client programs using the Socket object (instead of TcpClient and TcpListener) and then read and write using the Send() and Receive() functions on the socket.

Hi all, I am writing a windows forms app that I want to connect to our equipment over an ADSL connection, this equipment contains data that I wish to download. Which, in your opinions, is the best route to go to transfer this file: FTP, I have read that this can be unreliable, and needs a lot of coding to make robust. a third party component is not an option.

Hi all, I have created a chat application, and one of it's functionality to send files to the connected user. I read the contents of the files into a Byte array and send that through sockets. Now when i send a file of 150 kb size the file seems to be corrupted at the receivers end. some part of the file is not received. Is there any restriction of size for sending files across internet using sockets?

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
