How can I create a very simple Multi connection TCP Server?

Recommended Posts

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!

Looks very good! I am actually making progress with my TCP Server and Client after a lot of trial and error lol. You look like you know what you're doing, may I message you in the near future if I need a second opinion or helping hand?

      I started working on this program in the summer of 2008 then I stopped cause I faced some problems I couldn't overcome back then. Now that I've practiced more and have become a better scripter/programmer I'm releasing the program to the public to get some opinions. I know it's not a new concept but it's the first program I started besides some small stuff I did just for practice! I won't post the source code yet because it's still under construction, although I'm sure I've posted early stages of the code with bugs in the past in some topic...
      What I wanted was a simple, small, serverless program that would work without installation cause I wanted it for where I work, so I ended up with this!
       
      I have attached some images of various versions, also visit the forum thread.
       
      The package includes s!mpL3 LAN Messenger, the License Agreement and the change log.
       
      Current version 2.9.9.0! [13/06/2019]
       
      Check the Change Log below!

      Read the license before using this software.

      Hello Guys and AutoIt Scriptwriters!🎉❤️
      I've created a script to notify to me if RDP main IP changed then send a message via Telegram bot to me
      But some of my RDP's Main IP are @IPAddress1 or @IPAddress3 or Public IP Address...
      I want to detect automatically the IP that windows client can run RDP to remotely control
      This image can help you that what i say, there are three RDP with specified IP, i want to run script in these RDP's then capture those IP's changes then notify me via Telegram bot

      Hello,
      When new versions e.g. of your compiled script cannot be replaced on the server, as they are in use, you can use this script to manage to close the open handles and to replace the old file with your new version.

      ----------
      edit: this is probably in the wrong place, can a moderator move it to wherever it belongs?
      ----------

      is there any way to completely disable TCPTimeout and make TCPRecv() wait indefinitely? maybe setting it to 0 or -1 or something? 
      the docs doesn't seem to mention any way to disable it

      - the underlying C code would set SO_RCVTIMEO to 0 , aka

      DWORD timeout=0;
      setsockopt(s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_RCVTIMEO, &timeout, sizeof(timeout));

      Hi everyone,
      I wonder if there is a cloud service that can offer a physical server so that AutoIT can turn as it is in a physical machine.
      Thank you
