can someone explain me how i cud transfer files from client to server & from server to client using tcp sockets.

if any1 has worked on the same thing ... cud u tell me how u did it ..

also if assuming both my client and server are on same machine and i have just one card ... i will have just one ip address ... so if i require a server to be connected to random number of clients ... how wud i do it ... i know port numbers cud be used .. but without hardcoding the port numbers ... how wud i assign port numbers for each connection?

thanks a lot

The examples are not made for speed, but are working prototypes. If you need more concurrency on the server use threading or non blocking io.

The server:

package test;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.net.ServerSocket;
import java.net.Socket;

public class ServerTest
{
      public static void write(InputStream in, OutputStream out)
            throws IOException
      {
            int c;
            while((c = in.read()) != -1)
            {
                  out.write(c);
            }
      }
      
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
            try
            {
                  ServerSocket socket = new ServerSocket(4500);
                  while(true)
                  {
                        Socket client = socket.accept();
                        System.out.println("client = " + client);
                        FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream("a.txt");
                        write(fin, client.getOutputStream());
                        fin.close();
                        client.close();
                  }
            }
            catch(Throwable t)
            {
                  t.printStackTrace();
            }
      }
}

and the client:

package test;

import java.net.Socket;

public class ClientTest
{
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
            try
            {
                  Socket socket = new Socket("localhost", 4500);
                  ServerTest.write(socket.getInputStream(), System.out);
                  System.out.flush();
                  socket.close();
            }
            catch(Throwable t)
            {
                  t.printStackTrace();
            }
      }
}
