Establishing Socket Connections
Step by step instructions to get sockets communicating in (v)pro5. This goes along with the examples in the Socket Overview documentation, but includes a few more things.
0. Add the following alias line to the config.bbx file.
alias N0 tcp "" nodelay
1. Open one session of Vpro/5.
2. Start a server session.
3. From a DOS prompt, type:
c:\> netstat -a |more
(This will show the server started on port 12000 and it should say it's "listening".)
4. Open a second session of VPRO/5.
5. Start a client session.
6. From client session:
>write(1) "socket test"
7. From server session:
socket test (value of a$)
8. From Client session:
>input "enter something: ",i$
enter something: another socket test
>let i$=i$+$0D0A$;write record(1)i$
9. From Server session:
another socket test
