Sockets help: Client for an already existing Server

**I was unable to find any previous posts about this so please forgive me if I did not search hard enough.**

Ok, so I'm developing a client for a server that has already been established and set-up. This server is written using C, and the client that I'm developing needs to be written in Python. Does this fact alone cause a problem? I've already got the framework for the client application laid out, which connects and sends no problem. I have no way of testing what exactly is going wrong however as when I do a receive my program just hangs forever.

Is this because of the fact that the server is not written in the same language as the client? I was hoping to avoid using python wrappers for a C client but if that is what it comes down to then I guess I have no choice.

Thank you in advance for any advice you could pass along.

Actually it started working .. and I don't even know what I changed! So I guess it's not a problem at all to have a C server exchange socket data with a Python Client, sweet!
