Sockets Server Side
« on: January 10, 2013, 10:34:27 pm »
Hey, I already wondered this a long time: How do I handle sockets on the server? I know how to do it on the client, and I mean more a general concept, but I put it in C/C++ programming help as for specific code examples i'd be good in C++.
Thanks for any help :D

Actually, I can't help you... but on Cemetech chat earlier today, there was a discussion about using this with gCn. (there eventually was an argument about programming langs though)

This is a more general question, not gCn related, because I am planning some other big things (hint hint hint) which are a lot easier socket wise than some workarounds.

To handle sockets server side, you pretty much just need to have a function listening on a specific port. When it receives a message, it stores the relevant data (client address, etc) and spins off a handler.

Whatever the implementation language, it boils down to listening on a port and handling messages, as indicated by Qwerty.55.

Erm, but once you have the client data, you open a socket with the ip and the port to it, just as the client would?
