See more: C# socket
I create a aid thread to listen the connection from client,but I failed when I close the Socket.Can you help me?
My code as follow:

class Listener{
   Thread  listenThread;
   Socket  listenSocket;
   bool isListeningContinued=false;
   public Listener(){
     listenSocket=new Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork,SocketType.Stream,ProtocolType.Tcp);
     listenThread=new Thread(new ThreadStart(Listening));
   public void Start(IPEndPoint ipEP){
   public void Stop(){
   void Listening(){
          Socket socket=listenSocket.Accept();
          //Do something to receive the data from client
I can Start the listen action correctly,but I failed to Stop the listen action , specifically I can't Stop the Accept action running in the aid thread. How can I stop the Accept action from the main thread? Thanks.

What I have done in the past is connect to myself so the accept drops through and then issue a stop command through the connection.
