WCF, How to capture the client disconnection at the server side.

Last Modified: 2012-06-21


I  have written a file server/client using WCF (net.tcp) .  Here is my problem:

While a client is uploading a file to the server, when I pull the ethernet cable at the client side my client gets an exception.(Which is obvious since i have disconnected the client from server).

 Below is the Upload file function. The problem is i  am not getting any exception  at the server side at all. So i can not detect that there is a problem with the client side.

How can i understand that the file transfer is not complete ?


public string UploadToServer(Stream stream)
  FileStream fStream=File.Open(.....);


  return "OK";
 catch (Exception ex)
  // Log operations here.
  return "ERROR";
