SslStream.ReadTimeout Property

Definition

Gets or sets the amount of time, expressed in milliseconds, a read operation blocks waiting for data.

public:
 virtual property int ReadTimeout { int get(); void set(int value); };
public override int ReadTimeout { get; set; }
member this.ReadTimeout : int with get, set
Public Overrides Property ReadTimeout As Integer

Property Value

The amount of time, in milliseconds, that elapses before a synchronous read operation fails.

Implements

Mono.Net.Security.IMonoSslStream.ReadTimeout

Examples

The following code example demonstrates setting the value of this property.

static void ProcessClient( TcpClient^ client )
{
   
   // A client has connected. Create the 
   // SslStream using the client's network stream.
   SslStream^ sslStream = gcnew SslStream( client->GetStream(),false );
   
   // Authenticate the server but don't require the client to authenticate.
   try
   {
      sslStream->AuthenticateAsServer( serverCertificate, false, true );
      // false == no client cert required; true == check cert revocation.
      
      // Display the properties and settings for the authenticated stream.
      DisplaySecurityLevel( sslStream );
      DisplaySecurityServices( sslStream );
      DisplayCertificateInformation( sslStream );
      DisplayStreamProperties( sslStream );
      
      // Set timeouts for the read and write to 5 seconds.
      sslStream->ReadTimeout = 5000;
      sslStream->WriteTimeout = 5000;
      
      // Read a message from the client.   
      Console::WriteLine( L"Waiting for client message..." );
      String^ messageData = ReadMessage( sslStream );
      Console::WriteLine( L"Received: {0}", messageData );
      
      // Write a message to the client.
      array<Byte>^message = Encoding::UTF8->GetBytes( L"Hello from the server.<EOF>" );
      Console::WriteLine( L"Sending hello message." );
      sslStream->Write( message );
   }

      Console::WriteLine( L"Authentication failed - closing the connection." );
      sslStream->Close();
      client->Close();
      return;
   }
   finally

Remarks

This property returns the value returned by invoking ReadTimeout on the underlying stream. When you set this property, the ReadTimeout value on the underlying stream is set to the specified value.

If the underlying stream is a NetworkStream, ReadTimeout is in milliseconds and is set to Infinite by default so that read operations do not timeout.
