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

Recommended Posts

Churchy112

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!

Hey Churchy112,

 

You should check out the Fast Multi-Client TCP server by Kealper

give a man an application, and he'll be frustrated for the day, Teach him how to program applications and he'll be frustrated for a lifetime.

Hi!

Just to add, take a look: on TCPServer UDF on my signature :)

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?

      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

      I have had several people ask for this, so I decided to work the algorithm for it and this is the result.
      What is it?
      A Gateway Proxy Sends and Receives Data Unmodified.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server
      What is it used for?
      You can use it as a gateway, relay or router between two known static IP addresses.
      More information is in the header of the script.
      Download: LocalGatewayProxy.au3
      You will need WSA_NBTCP.au3 from here:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/191954-wsa_nbtcp-v100-udf/
      If you have any questions or problems, let me know.

      This script is based on algorithm code from EnrMa.
      Updated: January 22, 2018
      Made improvements. Changes are in the script header.
      Known Issues: AutoIt x64 does not work properly with this script.
      Download: LocalProxyServer_v1.00.zip

      WSA_NBTCP.au3  (Windows Sockets API - Non-Blocking Transmission Control Protocol)
      Version: 1.00
      Type: UDF
      This is an accumulation of WSA code from many sources and modified to suit myself.
      These functions have been thoroughly tested using a Local Proxy Server, which
      is about the most strenuous test you can use.
      Includes my rendition of how a TCPRecv Timeout should work. Also includes a
      timewait/timeout using Select for TCP Send, which works great for that function.
      You will need a loop to use _WSA_TCPRecv(). An example will be forthcoming in a second post.
      Functions:
      #CURRENT_USER_FUNCTIONS
      _WSA_Cleanup
      _WSA_FormatMessage
      _WSA_GetLastError
      _WSA_TCPAccept
      _WSA_TCPCloseSocket
      _WSA_TCPConnect
      _WSA_TCPListen
      _WSA_TCPRecv
      _WSA_TCPSend

      #INTERNAL_FUNCTIONS
      __TimeoutManager
      __TimeoutReset

      #EXTRA_FUNCTIONS
      _WSA_GetAddrInfo
      _WSA_GetHostByAddr
      _WSAAsyncGetHostByName
      _WSAAsyncGetHostByName_Callback
      _WSA_GetNameInfo
       
      Requirements:
      - AutoIt Versions: 3.3.8.1 thru 3.3.15.0 (32Bit only).
      - TCPStartup() at beginning of script on startup.
      - TCPShutDown() and _WSA_Cleanup() on exit.
      Download UDF: WSA_NBTCP.au3

      AutoIt-SocketIo
      Yep yep, this is pretty much an attempt to port the existing project's concept https://socket.io/ to AutoIt's Codebase. So i will not go in to so much detail.
      This is how the communication is done http://i.imgur.com/0mMfsBD.png Each client is isolated to the server http://i.imgur.com/rVO2LFb.png Features
      Easy API VarType Translation (Example: If the server sends an int, the client will receive an int and vice versa) Fully featured examples Data encryption (Using Autoit's UDF Crypt.au3) Limitations / Drawbacks
      It is not possible to Broadcast/Emit objects Only 1D-arrays are allowed to be Broadcasted/Emitted (2D arrays will probably never be supported) Changelog
      Version 1.5.0 (This update DOES NOT break scripts)
      Added AutoIt like docs under Docs\. The docs are generated so its a 1 to 1 reflection of the UDF headers. Print of documentation Added a production ready server example. Added a new method: _Io_DevDebug which will display useful information when debugging. Added a new method: _Io_SetMaxRecvPackageSize which defaults to whatever _Io_setRecvPackageSize is set to. Added a new method: _Io_setOnPrefix which defaults to _On_ Added a new default client & server event called flood. Flood occurs when exceeding the $__g_io_nMaxPacketSize. $__g_io_nMaxPacketSize is set by _Io_SetMaxRecvPackageSize Fixed the 16 parameter limit when sending data with _Io_Emit, _Io_Broadcast, _Io_BroadcastToAll and _Io_BroadcastToRoom. This works on the same premise that AutoIt's Call Does Fixed a TRUNCATION problem when receiving packages which could cause crashes! Fixed a programming error which caused $__g_ionPacketSize to reset to default 4096 if _Io_Connect or _Io_listenwere called after _Io_setRecvPackageSize Fixed _Io_setEventPreScript and _Io_setEventPostScript They didnt work. Lol. Changed how events are fired so the client cannot crash the server by sending the wrong number of parameters (This also allows for optional parameters on callbacks) Changed _Io_On. The second parameter $fCallback can now be set to null. Doing this, the function assumes that the callback is: _On_<eventName>.
