Remarks

The peer-to-peer host is the "seed node" responsible for initiating the peer-to-peer networking session, inviting peers to participate in applications for which this type of network connectivity is most appropriate for communications such as chat groups or game sessions.

This method can be used to create a PeerName object based on the PeerHostName property. This peer name is not associated with the identity of the calling node.
