Channels transport messages across remoting boundaries (for example, between computers or application domains). The System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Http.HttpChannel class transports messages using the HTTP protocol.
Channels are used by the .NET Framework remoting infrastructure to transport remote calls. When a client makes a call to a remote object, the call is serialized into a message that is sent by a client channel and received by a server channel. It is then deserialized and processed. Any returned values are transmitted by the server channel and received by the client channel.
A System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Http.HttpChannel object has associated configuration properties that can be set at run time either in a configuration file (by invoking the static System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingConfiguration.Configure(string) method) or programmatically (by passing a IDictionary collection to the HttpChannel.#ctor constructor). For a list of these configuration properties, see Channel and Formatter Configuration Properties.
