    Winsock working only for 127.0.0.1 Cant connect to other PCs

    Hi, I wrote a chat program using Winsock. I can manage to send messages to myself using the IP address 127.0.0.1, but when I try with a PC that is on my LAN it doesnt work. Have any ideas why?

    Thx in advance!!!

    A firewall maybe?? Or maybe that isn't a used ip address.

    Sorry, dumb one. I wasnt using INADDR_ANY in the address field for the server.
