Hi all, coding C# in VS.NET 2005

I'm using the following code.
// Receive a message and write it to the console.
UdpClient u = new UdpClient(m_ipEndPoint);

UdpState s = new UdpState();
s.e = m_ipEndPoint;
s.u = u;

u.BeginReceive(new AsyncCallback(ReceiveCallback), s);

while (!messageReceived)

The code executes fine the first time, the callback is handled properly.  My problem is that s.u.Close() does not release the port, so the next time this code executes "UdpClient u = new UdpClient(m_ipEndPoint);" it throws an exception saying the port is already in use.
