Remarks

EndpointPair is used to initialize (and provide data for) an endpoint pair used in networking apps. The EndpointPair object provides data for the local and remote endpoints for a network connection. EndpointPair is also used by many classes in other related Windows Runtime namespaces for network apps; here are some examples of those.

An endpoint consists of these two elements.

  • The hostname, or IP address.
  • The service name, or the TCP or UDP port number.

And an endpoint pair consists of these two elements.

  • The local endpoint.
  • The remote endpoint.

If the local hostname is null for the local endpoint before a network connection is established by a client app, then the system will automatically provide the local IP address for the app to use.

If the local service name is an empty string for the local endpoint before a network connection is established by a client app, then the system will automatically provide a TCP or UDP port for the app to use.

The WiFiDirectDevice class can be used to locate other devices that have a Wi-Fi Direct (WFD) capable device. The WiFiDirectDevice.GetDeviceSelector method gets the device identifier for a nearby WFD device. Once you have a reference to a nearby WFD device, you can call the WiFiDirectDevice.GetConnectionEndpointPairs method to get an EndpointPair object.

Constructors

EndpointPair(HostName, String, HostName, String)
