Async TCPlistener

Hey, i'm trying to figure out this network programming (heavy web/db background).  I think i've 'graduated' to asyncronous programming, and I figured out to how read data from a TCP stream asyncronously, but I can't figure out how to asyncronously retrieve new TCP connections.

Should I do it the old fashioned way (loop, sleep, read)? Is there an async way to do this?  thanks in advance for any help/comments

Check out the TCPListener help in MSDN.


Should point you in the right direction, I am using the bottom type at the minute to set up a service to listen for requests etc ...

Here's another example from Dr. Dobbs:

They implemented a echo server using Async TCPlistener in C#.
