Chat with winsock
Posted on 1999-07-13
I am cufused as to how a client/server chat program works.
Or for that fact, is that the only type of chat program?
I have a working vb5 chat program sample but it only works
on one computer. Both the client and the server that is. The client part of the program is fine but the server program can not initiate a connection. So if i wanted to make a chat program and give it to a friend out of state to call me with, they woundnt be able to connect to me. They would always have to wait for me to connect to them. What i need
to know is, is there any sample code out there anywhere
that would help me understand how to use the winsock control
to create a chat program that works similar to icq? Or am i trying to use the wrong control for this project?
