>> Please help me to point out my error

What error would that be ?

Do you get an error message ? If so, can you copy-paste it here literally ?
Does the code misbehave ? If so can you explain how it misbehaves ? (ie. what do you expect to happen, but what is happening instead)

>>       string totalfile = receiveMessage( sockfd);

The connection with the client is on the newsockfd socket.
The sockfd socket is used by the server for listening for incoming connections.

Make sure to use the right one ;)

Why ?


The error you are having, is because you are passing the wrong socket to the receiveMessage function. If you fix that, it should work better. No need for re-arranging code ;)

I fixed that error already. I must use "newsockfd" instead of "sockfd". The reason i rearrage my code is to make it t coherent to client.c . So it will make more sense and less prone-error, easier to debug hihi

Ok. That's fine.

But if your problem has been fixed, there seems to be no reason to keep this question open any more ...

on Server.c from line 115 to 126, how can know it finishes reading all trunk of the file? do I check the return of receiveMessage() to determine it? tks.

Ok, but this is not related to your original problem :

>>  received wrong size_to_read: Transport endpoint is not connected

so it should really go in a new question.
