TCPRecv returns error -1

5 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I'm currently trying out a TCP-connection, and sometimes I get an @error of -1 (minus one).

The help says that the error is a direct reflection of what "WSAGetError" (WSAGetlastError ?) returns, but I could not find any description for it.

I allso noticed that most, if not all WSA errors are in the 10000 -range, with "-1" falling far outside of it.

Is that "-1" maybe still an (undescribed) internal error (indicating a clean connection-termination) ?

Please include your script.

Any code will do, as long as the remote end terminates the connection (even the client/server code as is present in the help).

In that case, the answer to your initial question is: Yes, it is ment as a return value indicating a disconnection. As a disconnection is in relation to a connection a error, it is returned as such.

Thank you. That makes checking for a remote-initiated disconnect a bit easier.

Now all I need to do is to find a way to add that information to AI's Help (as its not present in there). :lmao:
