The TcpChannel and the BinaryFormatter is (or should be) compatible with
MS.NET. However, some classes from the library may have a different binary
representation, because they may have a different internal data structure,
so for example you won't be able to exchange a Hastable object between Mono
and MS.NET. It should not be a problem if you are using primitive types,
arrays or your own classes. In any case, could you post a test case?
