TCP Help

3 posts in this topic

So I was working on a program that accepts commands from another autoit program via TCP. I started development of this on a Windows XP box, and everything worked perfectly fine. Now I am home on my Vista machine and the TCPRecv isn't working the same way!

The commands I am sending are text strings, anywhere between 8 and 15 characters long, so for the TCPRecv command I had this:

$tcpMsg = TCPRecv($ConnectedSocket, 20)

That worked perfectly fine... $tcpMsg would be the string I was sending. In Vista, however, unless the max length for the TCPRecv command is the exact number of characters, it won't return the string

For instance, when I send "closeServer" to it, $tcpMsg is:

0x0B000000636C6F736553657276657200000000

If the max length is set to 11, then it works fine.

Am I doing something wrong? Any help appreciated

Alright, that's a lie above... it is always sending as hex.

Is there a way to convert from hex to text? That'd be a fine workaround
