Problem with TCPListen()

4 posts in this topic

Hi, i made a network(LAN) of 2 computers. I tested by pinging each other and was fine. But when i run the following script its not working..

TCPStartup() ; Working and returning "True"

TCPListen("192.168.0.3", 65432, 100) ; 192.168.0.3 is the IP of the 2nd computer on my network

Now it is returning "-1", which is an error.

Please EXPLAIN ME WHAT COULD BE THE POSSIBLE REASON...

In this case 192.168.0.3 is IP of server. If you want to create a TCP server from your computer use @IPAddress1.

If you don't solve your problem use @error to detect error.

Hi ...friend...do you mean that in case of ...

TCPListen($IP, 65432, 100)

is $IP is the IP address of the computer on which i am running this script?...I am not clear about the concept...

@IPAddress1 is a macro that return IP address of first network adapter.

If you want to use this form

TCPListen($IP, 65432, 100)

you must assign value to $IP

$IP = @IPAddress1
TCPListen($IP, 65432, 100)
