Winsock Connection

Dear All,

I have two application that using winsock control which is a server and client.

My client program is connect to server that to transfer  text file from server to client.

My problem:
In server i have store all the text file in one folder, and my client program only can tansfer one file at a time. in this situation how my client program can make a one connection and transfer all the file inside the folder to the client side?  
Example : Loop until all the file inside folder have been transfer to the client and will close the connection.

It is possible the winsock can transfer more than one file at a time (i mean is one after another)?

Any help is appreciate .


Thanks in advance.

Hi!

I asumen that you do know how to use the winsock control.

To do that, you could do something like:

Load the list of filepaths into a listbox, or use a filelistbox control and set it's path to that of your desired folder.

Then, do some coding like this:
'At the declarations area, declare this booleam variable
'This variable is used to determine if the entire file is sent
Dim SentFinished as Boolean

For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
SentFinished = False
'Coding for opening the text file to a string called MyFile
'Send the filename over
Winsock.SendData "File: " & List1.List(i)
Send the file details
Winsock.SendData MyFile

While SentFinished = False
DoEvents
Wend
Next i

Then, in your winsock control's SendCOmplete event, add this line of code:

SentFinished = True

That's it!

Arrrgh!  Spotted an eror.  The main looping code should be changed to this:


For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
'Coding for opening the text file to a string called MyFile
'Send the filename over
Winsock.SendData "File: " & List1.List(i)
Send the file details
SentFinished = False
Winsock.SendData MyFile

While SentFinished = False
DoEvents
Wend
Next i

Ofcourse, your client program at the other side should keep checking for the string "File: " to determine that it's the file data, not the filepath of a file so as not to corrupt the text file and to have a location to save the file : )

That's it!
