Hi Jignesh,

Here is a list of high-level features for remoting in Whidbey (.NET
Framework 2.0):

– IpcChannel – This is a same-box cross-process channel, which avoids the
reliance on a network stack a la Tcp and Http Channels.

– Secure TcpChannel – TcpChannel now support encryption, signing and
authentication via new underlying SSPI APIs in System.Net

– Version Tolerant Serialization – more a serialization feature but this
allows for versioning of types without worrying about failing to
de/serialize when communicating with older versions on the client/server.

– Generics support – Full use of generics is supported in remoting

– IPv6 support – Supports IPv6 addresses

– Connection cache control for TcpChannel – this allows the control of the
connection cache timeout to better support load-balancing scenarios with
the TcpChannel
