Create a timer, look:

Then on the time you defined, close the connection: Socket.Close()

That's all

Create a timer object in your form, then set it's interval to 600000 (it's in millisecond, means 10 min)

Then

private void timer1_Tick(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
Socket.Close();
}

Do this:

If (checkSocket.Connected == false) then checkSocket.close()

Approach can be taken to start a timer as soon as you have your server listening for the connections. You can set the timer to a value of 10 min. As soon as you have a connection from client coming, you can stop the timer. Else, if the timer timesout in 10min, you can close the server listening port or exist gracefully.
