Hi,

If the FlushFileBuffers(hPipe) in a namedpipe server has failed with an error "Pipe has been ended",
Is there any way to again to connect to the same pipe and try flushing the buffer ? Will I loose the contents that couldn't be flushed with the FlishFileBuffers(hPipe) ?

There is no need to do so. The system will flush the pipe when it is closed gracefully. If the pipe is forcibly shutdown by the "other" side (which would cause data loss), reconnection atempts will be futile anyway.
