The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson

StreamingContext.State == Other?

I’ve been messing around with .NET Remoting recently.

I’ve noticed this in the debugger, searched around online, and now confirmed it in Rotor (as a proxy for .NET 2). Many have asked the question, but I have yet to find an answer.

Why does the default BinaryFormatter used in .NET Remoting set the State property of the StreamingContext to Other (and not Remoting)?

I’m wondering too if I can use Other as a proxy for the Remoting state (i.e., that I’ll never see Other in a non-remoting context).

Anyone know?
