This works on Visual Studio 2008 but not after I converted the project to 2010:

        Try
            tcpListener = New TcpListener(Dns.GetHostEntry(SysName).AddressList(0), SvrPortNum)
            tcpListener.Start()
        Catch ex As Exception
           ' ex.Message = "The requested address is not valid in its context"
        End Try

The  statement
          tcpListener = New TcpListener(SvrPortNum)
works. I could use it as a workaround, but dont want to.

Is there something new with VS 2010, or a bug or something? I would really like to be able to specify the address to listen on if possible.

Thanks
