CreateNamedPipe... someone got any idea?
Posted on 1998-05-25
Lately I have been experimenting with pipes. I made two apps (server and client) respectively. The problem is that the server app doesn't initialize the pipe. I checked for all the parameters and also reffered to the example on a CD (Visual C++ 4.0 Developer Studio) yet no success. The CreateNamedPipe function doesnt create any pipes.
The pipe name string is written correctly \\\\.¡\\pipe\\mypipe for the server side.
I checked server app even on the same computer as client one (basically it was meant to run on a server - NT 4.0), otherwise the network itself isn't a problem.
I'm asking what else could be wrong?
