Hi gurus, i have the next problem, my code need send a tcp string, the first 2 bytes of the string are the lenght of the string.


I have a string of length 690 = 02 b0 in hexadecimal, but the receptor receives 02 C2 B2, whereas it should receive 02 B2.

I have proven in UTF8 encoding and ASCII, but I'm not getting the desired result

Please help me to fix this issue

Thanks for all solutions
// Get the string lenght 
char[] lk = ToCharsBitShift(sXMLResponse.Length);
// attach the lenght to the string
sXMLResponse = lk[0].ToString() + lk[1].ToString() + sXMLResponse;
//Encode the string to bytes
Byte[] ClientResponse = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(sXMLResponse);
//Send the response to client
clientStream.Write(ClientResponse, 0, ClientResponse.Length);
 public static char[] ToCharsBitShift(int x)
      char[] chars = new char[2];
      chars[1] = (char)(x & 0xFF);
      chars[0] = (char)(x >> 8  & 0xFF);
      return chars;
