Need socket example

Hi, having alot of problems with async sockets and have kind of given up. If anyone can create a small sample of these features, points are yours.

I need a console application that is able to open up 2 connections to 2 _different_ servers, at the same time.

One should run on a thread and send "PING" to the server, once every xx seconds.
The other should just run normally as I'm expected to send commands to the stream - written from the console.

I don't mind what you use, TcpClient or Socket, aslong as both connections to the server's running until I close the application.

Some of the problems i'm having is doing while loops to keep reading for data, I always end up with only 1 line of data, then not being able to read anymore.

I've tried the async client socket example from MSDN, but it won't give a reply back. Server is sending '\0' char at the end I believe.

Thanks!

Did you read this sample:

Asynchronous socket chat sample can be found in the CSharp.msi file - download and install it. It is quite simple and can help to write your own code. And it is really working.
