Hi!

Need some help to understand what a sink is in remoting.

Do I need to use it?
What is it for?
When should I use it?

for example what does this do


Dim serverProv As BinaryServerFormatterSinkProvider = New BinaryServerFormatterSinkProvider

 Dim clientProv As BinaryClientFormatterSinkProvider = New BinaryClientFormatterSinkProvider

  serverProv.TypeFilterLevel = System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.TypeFilterLevel.Full

 Dim props As IDictionary = New Hashtable
 

        props("port") = 0

        Channel = New System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.tcp.TcpChannel(props, clientProv, serverProv)

Open in new window

Sinks are a additional layer in the .NET Remoting communication. YOu can use it to implement things an authentication layer which is added to every messeage that your client sends to your server.

To describing it here would use much space. So on codeproject is a very good tutorial

When you can use the default one why implement one ?
Sinks are complicated for beginners so why implement one.
every additional implemented sink or code must be tested.
so when you can use the default one use it.
