I looked at the TcpClient() class constructor and it appears that it does
not take any
parameters, at least according to the documentation I found.

It actually has 3 ctors that behave differently.

It confused me... the one that takes a string and an int actually does use
those for the remote server and tries to connect. That seems to be the one
OP is using. I was suggesting the one that takes an IPEndPoint instead and
this is interpreted for the local ip/port. I recommend using this ctor,
especially in non-trivial network configurations such as having multiple
network adapters installed, otherwise it may connect over the wrong network
adapter. (I wasted a day using the similar UdpClient wondering why it
wasn't sending anything when it turns out it was sending over a VMWARE
network interface instead of the physical network card!) This was fixed
when I used the ctor with the IPEndPoint parameter.
