  1. i am trying to figure out how a server can connect to a client Over the internet. In this is script. The client connects to the server on the same machine (localhost) and executes the commands from the client. How can I change that instead communicating over localhost to communicate over the internet with tcp ipaddress and a port. What i actually need help of is 1. The server will open a port and listen to communication from a No-ip address 2. I input the no-ip address and correct port in the client side, and when i click on connect, it connects to the server if its online This is the client #include <GuiConstantsEx.au3> THIS IS THE CLIENT #include <NamedPipes.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> ;

  4. Morning all, For past few days I've been rattling my brains trying to work out how to create TCP Server and Client. I have successfully made a connection between a single client and server but beyond that I'm hopeless! I've been messing with Arrays and trying to read other examples but it's a little over my head... I was hoping I could ask someone to give me a really simple example with some comments for a server to accept multiple connections and a client to connect and receive data from server. I'm planning to have a client and server GUI to display "Client connected with identifier" "Server connected" "Message from server" etc Thanks in advance!
  5. Good morning, I'm hoping some of you kind people could help me get started on a simple client on a workstation which can report events and computer information back to a console on a server to display all the information. I support primary schools which are always a mess when I take them on so this would be hugely helpful. I'm still very new to AutoIT so if anyone could point me in the right direction or any examples they have would be great. I did have a quick look on the forum but the topics I found looked way more complex for my needs. Thanks
  6. Hello, I just made another TCP server. I will use the server for data collection and a lot of clients can get the data from TCP. I now use it for UDP broadcast some devices to get their IP's. You can also use it for chat's. It is very low level, but so you have more options than with the pure AutoIt functions. Just start the server in SciTE to see the console outputs. Then you can start up to 63 clients to talk to the server. I hope you like it.

  7. I'm trying to create two sides; A client side and a server side. I've got each one to work and send data from the client to the server, but if two clients are sending data at the same time. I would like to be able to get both and not just have one send while the other one gets ignored. Is there anyway I can implement a buffer so that when one connection gets done the other then starts receiving from the second client? Here is my code. ~Client Side~ TCPStartup() HotKeySet("{Esc}", "Quit") Local $ip, $port, $data, $connect $ip = "*servers IP address here*" $port = 21230 $connect = TCPConnect($ip, $port) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Could not connect to " & $ip) sleep(1000) Quit() EndIf message() ;ConsoleWrite($data) Sleep(3000) Quit() Func message() Local $File, $Line = "", $i = 0, $EOF = "" $File = FileOpen("tcpexample.txt", 0) If $File = -1 Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to read the file.") Exit EndIf Do $Line = FileReadLine($File) $EOF = @error ConsoleWrite($Line & @CRLF) TCPSend($connect, $Line) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("There was an error sending." & @CRLF) EndIf sleep(500) Until $EOF = -1 FileClose($File) EndFunc Func Quit() TCPShutdown() Exit EndFunc ~Server Side~ TCPStartup() HotKeySet("{Esc}", "Quit") Local $ip, $port, $Accept, $Listen, $AcceptError = True, $Result $Result = FileOpen("tcptest.txt", 1) $ip = @IPAddress1;try $IPAddress2/3/4 if this doesn't work $port = 21230 $Listen = TCPListen($ip, $port) If ($listen = - 1 or $listen = 0) and (@error = 1 or @error = 2) Then ConsoleWrite("TCPListen returned @error: " & @error) Quit() EndIf While 1 If $AcceptError = True Then AcceptConnection() EndIf If $AcceptError = False Then $recv = "" $recv = TCPRecv($Accept, 1024) If @Error Then ConsoleWrite("Connection timed out: " & $Accept & @CRLF) $AcceptError = True EndIf If $recv <> "" Then FileWriteLine($Result, $recv) ConsoleWrite("We received this: " & $recv & @CRLF) EndIf EndIf WEnd Func Quit() TCPShutdown() FileClose($Result) Exit EndFunc Func AcceptConnection() $AcceptError = True While 1 $Accept = TCPAccept($Listen) If $Accept <> -1 Then ConsoleWrite($accept & " has connected" & @CRLF) $AcceptError = False ExitLoop EndIf WEnd EndFunc
  8. This topic will contain simple and working client server communication example along with some basic info for understanding. Examples are based on multi client communication that is happening on one computer (localhost). Changing (if it's not already set correctly) the IP address parameter on server script to reflect your network device IP address will allow you to communicate with other clients on network or even to communicate on internet if your network settings (forwarded router port, ip address on that port is seen from others on internet, you're not trying to do client server from identical computer on identical internet connection) are configured correctly. Every client connecting will need to have server IP address for network (or server public IP address for internet) connection in his client script. So edit client script to correspond to server address TCPConnect('type server ip address in client', 1018). Sometimes firewall can be your problem, if something isn't working turn off firewall and see if it helps. Server will always listen on his Network Adapter IP Address and not on his public address. In some rare occasions server can be set to listen on, with that he will listen from any device that he have physically connected on his MB USB or something third (with localhost included for listening). But i would not know the end result of what will happen if some other program that you have installed need that port (or you started 2 servers that interpret one with another). First part will hold just plain code.Second part will hold identical code with comments below commands for more info and understanding hopefully to help new autoit users to understand what and why that something is there.Other parts will hold additional info.First part: Working Code (working in two way communication, with multiple and-or identical client)Server #include <Array.au3> TCPStartup() Dim $Socket_Data[1] $Socket_Data[0] = 0 $Listen = TCPListen(@IPAddress1, 1018, 500) If @error Then ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPListen error number ( ' & @error & ' ), look in the help file (on MSDN link) on func TCPListen to get more info about this error.' & @CRLF) Exit EndIf While 1 For $x = $Socket_Data[0] To 1 Step -1 $Recv = TCPRecv($Socket_Data[$x], 1000000) If $Recv Then MsgBox(0, 'Client Number ' & $x & ' with connected socket identifier ' & $Socket_Data[$x], 'Recived msg from Client: ' & @CRLF & $Recv, 5) TCPSend($Socket_Data[$x], 'bye') TCPCloseSocket($Socket_Data[$x]) _ArrayDelete($Socket_Data, $x) $Socket_Data[0] -= 1 EndIf Next _Accept() WEnd Func _Accept() Local $Accept = TCPAccept($Listen) If $Accept <> -1 Then _ArrayAdd($Socket_Data, $Accept) $Socket_Data[0] += 1 EndIf EndFunc ;==>_AcceptClient TCPStartup() $Socket = TCPConnect(@IPAddress1, 1018) If @error Then ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ), look in the help file (on MSDN link) on func TCPConnect to get more info about this error.' & @CRLF) Exit EndIf TCPSend($Socket, 'Hi there.

Sixth Part: How to forward ports? (2 nice youtube tutorials) Seventh Part: Internet communication? If i wrote something incorrectly or wrong please tell me so that i can correct it. Edited: Local and Global, added aditional info about reciving msgs for maxlen buffer.
  9. This Function gets the Hostname of the Client on the Terminal Server, can be used to determine the correct std printer near the location of the client while working on the terminal server session.
