Socket Connection

Hello there,
So I want to create a program which can establish a TCP socket connection on Internet. But I don;t want to use any ActiveX controls or whatever it is. I just need a simple EXE file which run on each PC.

Regards A.Matev

Try this demo:

Multiple clients can connect to a server and chat with each other.

Do you think this sample can be runned on each one PC?

I don't know any additional files in my program. Just one EXE file
Do you understand me?

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Try the FastNet components shipped with
Delphi.

They work quite good and on every computer - just TCP/IP has to be installed ;)

If you need more info, write back.

Hi razor,

Go to http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/

And download the FWS (actually cardware) ICS component pack. This pack doesn't uses ActiveX, ole, dll (except the winsock dll of windows :-)).

Also download the demo's.
Then go to : http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/usermadeuk.htm

And download these example programs which you need

Regards, Zif.

Which Delphi version do you have?

In Delphi 5 Enterpise the Fastnet components under the 'Fastnet' tab. In Delphi 4 client/server they are to be found under the 'Intenet' tab.

IMO these components really s*ck.

And are you sure it doesn't need any OCX,DLL files or sth like them?

I need a little source code (especially how to getthe incoming data)

Did you try my example?

razor111Author Commented:
Yes I did
But it uses an ActiveX control (I think so)
Is that right?

If not I will accept your answer
(but first I'm gonna test it)

No ActiveX! Just 2 exe's, a client (you can run multiple clients) and a server who talk to each other using TCP/IP.

Only with Windows 9x installed? right?
Are you sure?

Yes, but why don't you just try it?

Let me correct my previous comment.
It runs on all win9x PC's with TCP/IP installed.

Hi Razor !

Strange, but another participant of the ExpertsExchange has solved his problems with the FastNet-Components...

My opinion is that the rejection of my answer wasn't correct, but if you think
it's the way it should go ....
