I was wondering if there is a need to do endian conversions for data being send via sockets in C# or will the underlying calls convert it for you?

I was reading up on network byte order I was thinking if this would affect different kinds of data like String, Short and Longs, etc...

If both sides of the connection is a .net application then there is no need for conversions, but if the standard requires a specific packet format and structure then you will have to create the endian accordingly.

So if let's say one side is running windows and the executable is in C# and on the other side, it is running UNIX and the executable is in C/C++, I need to do the underlying conversion before sending?
