hey guys,

i am making a server for one of my games so that i can play multiplayer, but i can't get this one bit working. so far i can make a server that works so that the server starts up and then the client, but i want it so that it is able to work as the client starting up and going into a connect loop so that i keeps searching for the server and then when the server starts up, it connects. can anyone help me?

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;
namespace TCP_Server_Test___Client
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.Write("root[.]$ ");
            string cmd = Console.ReadLine();
            if (cmd.StartsWith("connect "))
                string op = cmd.Substring(8);
                string ipaddress = op.Substring(0, op.IndexOf(":"));
                ipaddress = ipaddress.Replace(" ", "");
                int port = Convert.ToInt32(op.Substring(op.IndexOf(":") + 1));
                Console.Write("password: ");
                string pass = Console.ReadLine();
                if (pass == "password")
                        TcpClient tcpclnt = new TcpClient();
                        tcpclnt.Connect(ipaddress, port);
                        Console.Write("Klunus[.]$ ");
                        string str = Console.ReadLine();
                        byte[] data = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(str);
                        NetworkStream netStream = tcpclnt.GetStream();
                        if (netStream.CanWrite)
                            netStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
                        goto Begin;
                    catch (Exception e)
