Response in same Socket

Hi all,
I have written a simple socket server. Through this socket I'm sending information to another machine and I'm waiting for response in the same socket.
I can not receive response because the BufferedReader is not ready!
I'm waiting for the response in this way :

try {
BufferedReader inFrom = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(clientSocket.getInputStream(), "UTF-8"));
if (!inFrom.ready()) System.out.println("The buffer is still not ready!!!");
String str;
 while ((str = inFrom.readLine()) != null) {
} catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }

I tried to put this code ahead the code written above:
while (inFrom.ready()) {
and then the BufferedReader becomes ready, but I still can not receive any information, even that the information is sent from the other machine!
Do you know how can I receive response into the same socket. Probably I'm doing something wrong?!
Thanks in advance!

Try flushing the output stream that is sending, and make sure it sends an end of line.
