SecureBlackbox 16: (.NET) Why does my socket-based component work in .NET but not in Silverlight?

Note: This article applies only to SecureBlackbox Legacy. For future development please consider using the latest version.

Silverlight components are subject to Microsoft's restrictions on the Socket class in non-trusted applications and web applets.

If you are running a trusted Silverlight 4 application, then there should be no problems with the components connecting to the server.
