Client Server connection

Client Server connection

Client Server connection

I use the ServerSocket class and the ClientSocet class of c++ builder. the communiction is working fine, but I want the server to don't accept any more client if one client is connected. It is for a two player game.

please help me


RE: Client Server connection

if its for a two player game, then why dont you have the first person be the server and the second the client. they can send information back and forth.


RE: Client Server connection

I have the first person as a server and the second as the client. my problem is that if one more client try to connect to the server. this client should not be acceptet by the server. an now I need to know how to say do not accept any more client.

RE: Client Server connection

I have written FAQ101-1000.
That is a description how to program your own server socket.

In the listen routine there is one parameter NR_OF_CONNECTIONS which defines the number of possible connections before the socket blocks the connection.

I could not find this in the TServerSocket Class.


RE: Client Server connection

what you can do is make a global integer, say numclients. Then in the OnClientConnect event, type numclients++

if (numclients >= 0)
     /* drop the client */
     /* I know the code below isn't correct, but I don't remember the  function */  
          /* something went wrong */
