i have to upload a ms access database file to the server from my client program. The server program should connect to this database and read the data. What's the easiest way to upload the file? Is it FTP? i tried sockets, but it only allows like 9kb of data transfer capacity.
Thanks for any help
If you connected your two programs via sockets and you only got 9k, then you will not be any faster with other methods. Sockets are the base for any transmission. However, 9k seems awfully slow, maybe you can post an example to check if there were any other side effects. Did you try to upload something else to the server? How long did it take to upload your software ("the server") last time?
sorry, what i meant was that the server only receive likes 8-9kb's of the 12kb of file. The file was sent as truncated text file. My uploading bandwidth is ok. i tried increasing the size of SendBufferSize and ReceiveBufferSize properties of the sockets both at server and client, but still the server received the same file size. i have used the typical server-client socket communication code.
