Introduction

If you want to use the WebSocket API, it is useful if you have a server. :-) In this article I will show you how to write one in C#.

In lots of server side programming language you can do it, but to keep things simple and more understandable, I chose Microsoft's language.

This server gives which is required by RFC 6455 so it will only handle connections from Chrome version 16, Firefox 11, IE 10 and over.

First steps

WebSocket is communicating over a TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) connection, luckily C# has a TcpListener class which name tells everything.
