working on a socket program.... the client side sends the information to the server side... all that works great my challenge is I want the two to exchange information when ever they make contact.... so I have one constantly listening and one constantly sending but they don't connect... if I start one then the other on start up it works perfectly but if they are both running and I try to connect the two nothing happens... why is this and how do I fix it ?

        super(Example, self).__init__(parent, title=title, 
            size=(250, 200))
        panel=wx.Panel(self,-1) 
	wx.StaticText(panel, -1, 'sending',(0,0))
        self.Show()

class ThreadClass(threading.Thread):
    def run(self):
	
	host='197.168.1.195'
	#host=socket.gethostname()
	port = 51269
	size = 1000000
	addr = (host,port)
	s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
	try:
	    f = open('duplicate_table2.txt', "r")
	    data = f.read()	    
	    f.close()
	    s.connect(addr)
	    s.send(data)
	    data = s.recv(size)
	    s.close()
	    print "Got it"
	    os.remove('duplicate_table2.txt')

Hmm I don't really understand your question.

What do you mean with:

"but if they are both running and I try to connect the two nothing happens... "

You mean you start both applications on two different machines and only then you physicall
connect the cable????

Usually the server should be started first.

It will then listen on the all existing network interfaces for an incoming conection.

Then you should start your client.

If you don't know who starts fitst, then your client should try to connect.
If it fails it should wait a few seconds (depends on your application) and the rettry to connect.

I don't see any code in your client, that retries to connect. Perhaps this is your only problem:

I would add print statements to line 35 / 37 of your client.
I would add your client thread in a while loop and I would sleep for some time any time an error occured.

I hope this gives you some ideas.

thanks ... that is exactly what my problem is... so if both machines have been running for a while and I connect them nothing happens they don't connect ... but if I let the server run then start and stop the client then they communicate and send and receive data

OK.

So try to add a while loop to your client and print statements in the exception section.
Attached  modified client code (untested) should give you some ideas.
