Weird TCP-IP problem

3 posts in this topic

Hey there,

Ok, so I created a TCP Server and Client. Both work perfectly when the IP address is set to "127.0.0.1". However, when I type in my internet IP address (69.160...etc) in the client instead of "127.0.0.1", I get this strange error (Error: 10061). I don't have any routers and/or firewalls.

Does anyone know what went wrong? Does the server ONLY listen to a LAN? How do you go about getting it to work?

Thanks,

Matt :(

You must type the same address on both server and client programs.
