This behavior should be easy to implement. I put it in my TODO list.

Hmm, this should work. Maybe something is broken in the runtime. I'll review

Thanks David!

Since Mono 0.24 the TcpChannel is compatible with MS.NET, at least for what
we've been able to try. Please, try it. I'll be glad to help solving the

In the Mono Handbook in the chapter on Remoting, it states that "The
TcpChannel is working, but it is currently not compatible with MS' tcp

This is something that is standing as a roadblock for some proof of concept
testing that we are trying to do with Mono.  We would like to look into what
is necessary to make this work across platforms and hopefully contribute to
the project.

Can anyone give us a primer on what may be wrong and the best way for us to
work toward a solution?
