I'm going to have to use several different programs, possibly some on different computers. The computers would however be on a file sharing network and they'd have the ips/ports for the other programs. I'm going to have to send data between the different programs. Does anyone know an easy way this could be achieved? Thanks
im working on some code like this in my spare time (very very little of it)
i kind of have some console code working - it sends text form one comuter to another but i have to modify this to work on ip based communication.
assuming the network link already exists and you have the ip your program needs to send some sort of hello that notifies it is here, the recieving application needs to send an acknowledgement. Remember data and error checking - parity checking is not the best idea because its not very accurate.
