I'm trying to run the server client on: http://beej.us/guide/bgnet/output/ht...l#simpleserver
I have it compiled on a linux machine (through Putty) and when I run it, it just sits there with "server: waiting for connections...".
So about the "telnet remotehostname 3490". How do I know what the remotehostname is???
telnet 127.0.0.1 port
telnet localhost port
Ahhh, thanks! (Why doesn't the guide say that lol?)

Hello, world!Connection closed by foreign host.
Anyway, now the fun part... Modifying it to transmit custom messages back and forth
maybe because they assume people trying to write a server will be reasonably familiar with basic networking knowledge...
