I am sending some encrypted data to a server socket and storing it in a text file. When i access the data and decrypt it i am unable to get the same data. But when i post the same encrypted data without using sockets i am able to retrieve and decrypt and get actual data. Whats wrong with the server socket. Can any one please explain. Thanks in advance

How do you read the data from the socket?Don't use readers, just streams like this:
BufferedOutputStream fileOut=new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream("data"));
BufferedInputStream in=new BufferedInputStream(s.getInputStream());

byte[] buffer=new byte[1024];
int cb=0;
do
{
   cb=in.read(buffer,0,1024)
   if(cb!=-1)
       fileOut.write(buffer,0,cb);
}
while(cb!=-1);
fileOut.flush();
fileOut.close();
in.close();
s.close();


I think this would solve the problem. You are actually reading binary data so you should use Streams, because Readers performs character translation!

Regards.
