The Microsoft .NET Framework includes a full set of classes for network programming. These classes support low-level network programming tasks like querying the state of network interfaces and socketbased programming with Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to higher-level tasks like downloading files and HTML pages from the Web over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). You can even build fully distributed applications using distributed objects or service-oriented approaches.
