TCP headache. Trying to create server and client side apps, in oder to remote shutdown a computer

Recommended Posts

birdofprey

The helpfiles are really thin on this topic. I tried to figure out what I was doing wrong on my own, but I now have to stop wasting my time cause I have no clue. Hopefully all I ask for here is one minute from your time to spot the problem.

Except the comments regarding the script, I'd like to ask a few other questions related to this

How do I close a port ? Or a connection ?

Can I send data backwards ( to the initiator of an incoming connection) ?

Comments regarding security issues are also more than welcome.

Is that really that hard ? Where could I find more detailed information regarding this ?

Replace Sleep("500") with Sleep(500)

Also, I noticed that you try to accept the client right away. Meaning it will almost always $ConnectedlisteningSocket will be -1.

Whoops. Sleep ("500") ?! I guess that's what happens when you get lost between flawed examples and incomplete examples about TCP. This thread Tcp explained finally put an end to this.

Thanks Chip !

I have a client & server program to do exatcly this, if you want I can send you the codes in .txt, or give you a link for them. Just let me know. :)

Why not just use shutdown? shutdown targetcomputer parameters, etc...

I kinda get lost there, but thank you. I haven't had the time yet, I'll have a closer look at it.

Hurray. You'd save me hours of coding, probably, eventhough I'd most likely adapt things a bit. Use the method that's easier for you. Thank you very much in advance.

Why not just use shutdown? shutdown targetcomputer parameters, etc...

I don't know. Is that some windows command ? Never heard of it. If it is, that remote computer should "open up" to receive such commands, and I'm not sure I want to do that. Also... I want to be able to cancel the command and I want to be able to set the remote pc into hibernation sometimes.

Anyhow, with all these examples, I should be able by now to put things together, if I only had the time... the only issue left is: I really don't want to dig a hole into that systems security with my program, as this won't be used for a private network, but over the internet. As you see in the code probably, I tried to take some very rudimentary and most likely inefficient and useless preventive mesures to prevent bad things from happening.

Is there a general thread about networking security somewhere by any chance ?

Edit: typo
