It may be desirable to send partial data held on disk rather than from memory. This can be easily achieved by using the provided wrapper object StreamSendWrapper:

//Create a filestream linked to the data on disk
FileStream diskData = new FileStream("testfile.dat", FileMode.Open);

//Wrap the filestream in a thread safe stream which enables
//   thread safe stream operations.
ThreadSafeStream threadSafeStream = new ThreadSafeStream(diskData);

//Wrap the thread safe stream in StreamSendWrapper which records the data to be sent
//We intend to send the first 1024 bytes from testfile.dat
StreamSendWrapper sendWrapper = new StreamSendWrapper(threadSafeStream, 0, 1024);

//Send the data specified within sendWrapper
NetworkComms.SendObject("testFileData", "192.168.0.1", 10000, sendWrapper);

The receiving client  should handle the incoming data as byte[]:

//Add a global packet handler for packet of type "testFileData" which will receive byte[]
NetworkComms.AppendGlobalIncomingPacketHandler<byte[]>("testFileData", 
    (packetHeader, connection, incomingData) => { Console.WriteLine("Recieved {0} bytes.", incomingData.Length); });
