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?

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.

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.

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 ....
