Socket server error.


Hi to all,

i have the following simple Socket Server code and a vb client that send to
it some data using
WinHttp. (very simple code, just open and send)

The string is succesfully sent to the server but not the reverse when the
server just replies with a string.
The client reports (last dll error) that "the server returned an invalid or
unrecognized response".

Am i doing something wrong with the writing to network stream (neede headers
or something else) ??

Thanks for any help

here it is:

using System;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using System.IO;

public class AsynchIOServer
{
public static void Main() {
TcpListener tcpListener = new TcpListener(8501);
tcpListener.Start();
Console.WriteLine("started listening...");
while (true) {
Socket socketForClient = tcpListener.AcceptSocket();

if (socketForClient.Connected) {
Console.WriteLine("Client connected");
NetworkStream networkStream = new
NetworkStream(socketForClient);
StreamWriter streamWriter = new
System.IO.StreamWriter(networkStream);
StreamReader streamReader = new
System.IO.StreamReader(networkStream);
string theString = "Sending";
streamWriter.WriteLine(theString);
Console.WriteLine(theString);
streamWriter.Flush();
theString = streamReader.ReadLine();
Console.WriteLine(theString);
streamReader.Close();
networkStream.Close();
streamWriter.Close();
}
socketForClient.Shutdown(SocketShutdown.Send);
socketForClient.Disconnect(false);
}
}

Hello Vadym !

Yes, client uses WinHttp and send an http request.
I will look at your link you gave me.
I just do not know how i can return the simple world "Ok" back to the
http req originator and make sure that he understand it...

thanks again!

Hello, kikapu!

If client uses WinHttp then, IMO, it sends HTTP request?
And if that's true, server has to respond with valid HTTP response.

Have a look at the following RFC that describes HTTP protocol
( http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616.html )

ki have the following simple Socket Server code and a vb client that
ksend to
kit some data using
k WinHttp. (very simple code, just open and send)

kThe string is succesfully sent to the server but not the reverse when
kthe
kserver just replies with a string.
kThe client reports (last dll error) that "the server returned an
kinvalid or
kunrecognized response".

kAm i doing something wrong with the writing to network stream (neede
kheaders
kor something else) ??

kThanks for any help

khere it is:

kusing System;
kusing System.Net.Sockets;
kusing System.IO;

kpublic class AsynchIOServer
k{
k public static void Main() {
k TcpListener tcpListener = new TcpListener(8501);
k tcpListener.Start();
k Console.WriteLine("started listening...");
k while (true) {
k Socket socketForClient = tcpListener.AcceptSocket();

k if (socketForClient.Connected) {
k Console.WriteLine("Client connected");
k NetworkStream networkStream = new
kNetworkStream(socketForClient);
k StreamWriter streamWriter = new
kSystem.IO.StreamWriter(networkStream);
k StreamReader streamReader = new
kSystem.IO.StreamReader(networkStream);
k string theString = "Sending";
k streamWriter.WriteLine(theString);
k Console.WriteLine(theString);
k streamWriter.Flush();
k theString = streamReader.ReadLine();
k Console.WriteLine(theString);
k streamReader.Close();
k networkStream.Close();
k streamWriter.Close();
k }
k socketForClient.Shutdown(SocketShutdown.Send);
k socketForClient.Disconnect(false);
k }
k}

Hi Kikapu,
Thanks for using Microsoft Managed Newsgroup.

Vadym's direction is accurate. The http response header need to be
implemented by yourself.
For now, I want to provide a more direct way for you.
The following code snippet that I had found from internet is used to setup
a web server and I would like to share it with you:

Ok, i tried the example you gave me, i modified it to suit my needs on my
program and now everything
is working ok! Headers are sent correctly to Clients, wheteher thet are
browsers or socket clients.

Thanks a lot for your help! (And Vadym too, from whose link i got the Http
protocol errors...)
