@summy1

thanks for your solution but for reiceieve data replace this code to work correct
private void ReceiveCallback(IAsyncResult ar)
{
try
{
StateObject state = (StateObject)ar.AsyncState;
Socket client = state.workSocket;
int byteRead = client.EndReceive(ar);

            if (byteRead > 0)
            {
                state.sb.Append(Encoding.UTF8.GetString(state.buffer, 0, byteRead));
                response = state.sb.ToString();
                if (response.IndexOf("<EOF>") != -1)
                {
                    state.sb.Clear();
                    receiveDone.Set();
                }
                else
                {
                    client.BeginReceive(state.buffer, 0, StateObject.BufferSize, 0,
                    new AsyncCallback(ReceiveCallback), state);
                }
            }
