CSocket question

Hello,
I need to develop an application that uses CSocket and reads data through a certain port. The application will only read data through that port and will not send any. It should accept a connection from anywhere and save everything received  in a file. Saving in a file is not a problem, but I am facing a problem in putting the sockect to work. Could someone please provide me with the code of a socket that reads data through a certain port, please don't post any links, I have alot of links but I need something fast to work for today and I'll modify it later.

      Thanks,

          Mazen

One more thing, in VC++ 6 , we added the timer function by opening the class wizard and choosing WM_TIMER and then add function, but do we do so in VC++ .net?

The first thing you should do is derive your own class from CAsyncSocket, lets call it CYourAsyncSocket.

In this class, override the following functions:

OnAccept(), OnClose(), OnConnect(), OnReceive()

In your app, you set this class up as the listener socket (to receive connections):

CYourAsyncSocket listener;
int nListenPort = 12345; // the port you want to listen on for incoming connections

listener.Create(nListenPort);
listener.Listen();

Now, in your overridden CYourAsyncSocket::OnAccept() function, you call the Accept() function, passing in a new CAsyncSocket object. The function could look something like this:

void CYourAsyncSocket::OnAccept(int nErrorCode)
{
  CYourAsyncSocket* pNewSocket = new CYourAsyncSocket;

  Accept( *pNetSocket );
  // you now have the connection... maybe you should say hello :)
  pNewSocket->Send("Hello", 5);

  // you should actually store the new socket in some kind of an array...
  m_arraySockets.Add(pNewSocket);
}

As you can see in the above example, you can send with the Send() function if you need to. However, to receive data, you now need to hook the OnReceive() function as mentioned above to save the data coming down to a file... the function could look similar to:

void CYourAsyncSocket::OnReceive(int nErrorCode)
{
  TCHAR buffer[4096];
  int nBytesRead = 0;

  nBytesRead = Receive(buffer, sizeof(buffer));

  switch (nBytesRead)
  {
    case 0: // socket was closed
      Close();
      break;

    case SOCKET_ERROR:
      AfxMessageBox("Error on receive!");
      Close();
      break;

    default:
      {
        // This is where you need to save the data to a file. The data is in the buffer array.
      }
      break;
  }
}

That should sort you out :)
Cheers

HI carribus ,

   I know that you posted the code for me and amrit_82 posted a link, but I've used the class that is already written in the link he provided because as he said it is really a full-fledged code example and it took me five minutes to develop the application I need. Thank you both for solving my problem quickly.
