Harsha - you asked a similar question about a Java port two months ago,
to which I replied:
..similar issues apply to .NET virtual machines as they do to Java
virtual machines - gnokii needs to perform some low level I/O at the
bottom of the protocol stack and .NET can't do it itself, so some gnokii
code must remain outside the VM, or be built as an extension to it. How
easy is it to extend the .NET with a DLL? Can MONO run extensions?
Perhaps you were thinking that since .NET bytecode can be compiled from
C++, then it might be easier to port to than Java? Perhaps you are
right, but currently 100% of libgnokii is in plain C, not C++ and will
likely not compile for .NET - try it :)
