Named pipe disconnect timeout RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have implemented data communications between two PC hosts over Ethernet using Named Pipes mechanism. Namely, I use NamedPipeClientStream and NamedPipeServerStream objects. Generally it works fine, but the problem is that the Named Pipe connection is not tolerant to short network failures. I.e. if the ethernet connection is down for a half a second (and then recovers), the Named Pipe connection fails. Is it possible to configure Named Pipe's internal timeouts/retries values to make Named Pipe connection tolerate some transient network troubles?

    Best regards
