Asynchronous file transfer from server to client and vice versa

Hi all,

Can any one pls guide me through..I need to transfer the file from server to client and client to server using sockets in an Asynchronous mode so this file transfer doesn't hinder the common process of connecting and of the server and client...

here is the code i am trying to implement. this code snippet is for message transfer only for multiple clients.

/////////////////////////////file receive method when sent from client/////////////
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  public void OnReceive(IAsyncResult ar)
  2.             {
  3.             String content = String.Empty;
  5.             // Retrieve the state object and the handler socket
  6.             // from the asynchronous state object.
  7.             StateObject state = (StateObject)ar.AsyncState;
  8.             Socket handler = state.workSocket;
  9.             int bytesRead;
  11.             if (handler.Connected)
  12.             {
  14.             // Read data from the client socket. 
  15.             try
  16.             {
  17.             bytesRead = handler.EndReceive(ar);
  18.             if (bytesRead > 0)
  19.             {
  21.                 state.fst.Write(state.buffer, 0, bytesRead);
  22.                 state.fst.Flush();
  24.              //There  might be more data, so store the data received so far.
  25.             //    state.sb.Remove(0, state.sb.Length);
  26.             //    state.sb.Append(Encoding.ASCII.GetString(
  27.             //                 state.buffer, 0, bytesRead));
  29.             //// Display Text in Rich Text Box
  30.             //    content = state.sb.ToString();
  31.                 //SetText(content);
  33.             handler.BeginReceive(state.buffer, 0, StateObject.BUFFER_SIZE, 0,
  34.             new AsyncCallback(OnReceive), state);
  36.             }
  37.             }
  39.             catch (SocketException socketException)
  40.             {
  41.             //the other side closed impolitely
  42.             if (socketException.ErrorCode == 10054 || ((socketException.ErrorCode != 10004) && (socketException.ErrorCode != 10053)))
  43.             {
  44.             // Complete the disconnect request.
  45.             String remoteIP = ((IPEndPoint)handler.RemoteEndPoint).Address.ToString();
  46.             String remotePort = ((IPEndPoint)handler.RemoteEndPoint).Port.ToString();
  47.             // this.owner.DisconnectClient(remoteIP, remotePort);
  49.             handler.Close();
  50.             handler = null;
  52.             }
  53.             }
  56.             catch (Exception exception)
  57.             {
  58.             MessageBox.Show(exception.Message + "\n" + exception.StackTrace);
  60.             }
  61.             }
  62.             }
  64.             }

Are you looking for a program that can do this, or are you attempting to write your own? If you are attempting to write your own, what language is this in?

Here for Asynchronous File transfer you need to create two threads one for reading thread and Writing thread in both client and server.
when server accept the client socket it must assist the client with these two threads.
i am a java developer so i will show u some example in java itself.

public static void main(String args[])
ServerSocket soc=null;
soc=new ServerSocket(6600);
System.out.println("FTP Server Started on Port Number 6600");
catch(Exception e)
System.out.println("Waiting for Connection ...");
Handleclient t=new Handleclient(soc.accept());
catch(Exception e)
when server accepted the socket it calls handleclient class it extends the threads class.
from the class handle client we should call read and write thread.
