Hi,

Could somebody provide sample code for sending data between two .NET applications using TCP?

i.e. in app one:

string foo="data on a machine";


In app two, on a separate box, across a LAN (thus TCP)... how could I recover the value of "foo" from app one and assign what is returned to local variables for processing ?


Thanks!

Hi James_15;

You can use the .Net Remoting technology to do this. Here is a link to a article with sample code explaining how it works called:

Hi Fernando

Apologies for the delay in replying to your message - I have been on holiday.


Could you provide a code sample that would:

1. Create a server using TCP waiting for data
2. Create a client that can send data to the server in 1.
3. The server application does something with the data - e.g. push the information into a stack/queue ready for processing?


Thanks,

James

Hi James_15;

Please download the the files from this site http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/Net_Remoting.asp, Download source files - 16.6 Kb.

Compile the RemoteableObjects and compile run the server and client projects. In the server project you may have to delete the reference to the RemoteableObjects and re-create the reference because the author may have place the project in a different path then you did.

The sever is always listening to the network on TCP.
The client sends information to the server.
The server does something to the data, in this case displays the info to a text box.

The program is set up to work on a single computer but if you want to use it across a network then change the following lines in the code.

The Client:
remoteObject = (MyRemotableObject) Activator.GetObject(typeof(MyRemotableObject),"tcp://localhost:8080/HelloWorld");

Chance the word localhost to the name of the host on where the server is. Also if you need to use a different channel then 8080 then change it to reflect the channel you want to use.
