SuperSocket 1.4 SP2 Release

SuperSocket is a light weight, cross platform and extensible socket application framework. You can use it to build a server side socket application (like FTP server, SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 server, SIP server, SNMP server, etc) easily without thinking about how to use socket, how to maintain the socket connections and how socket works(synchronize/asynchronize).

It is a pure C# project which is designed to be extended, so it is easy to be integrated to your existing system. If your systems (like forum/CRM/MIS/HRM/ERP) are developed in .NET language, you must be able to use SuperSocket to build your socket application as a part of your current system perfectly.

I know there are two famous NIO open source frameworks named “MINA” and “Netty” in Java World which are used widely by developers. If you want to look for a .NET portion of MINA or Netty, I suggest you trySuperSocket, although SuperSocket is not strong like MINA and Netty but it is very simple and you can use it easily.


  • Very easy to use. You can create a robust socket server only by several classes
  • Support Sync and Async communication modes. You can change your socket server running mode by only changing configuration wihtout any code changes
  • Support custom protocol, no matter your protocol is a command line protocol or a binary one. Another open source project SuperWebSocket is built upon SuperSocket and take advantage of this custom protocol feature of it.
  • Support SSL/TLS encryption automatically
  • Support multiple socket server instances. You can define many socket servers on different ports in configuration, SuperSocket can run those servers in the same application/service
  • SuperSocket can run as console application and windows service. It provide a bat file to installSuperSocket as a windows service.
  • Flexible logging strategy which can log most of socket activities
  • Also support UDP socket
