Hi everyone,
I have just started learning socket programming in java.
I created a client server application,in my computer institute.
It works fine on the LAN,but when I ran it on my standalone pc,it did not work.
My pc has windows 98 operating system.
Do i need to install any additional protocols to make my java programs work?

It's probably just that your PC does not have networking installed. To use sockets, even only "localhost", you need to have the TCP/IP networking software ("stack"). Find your Windows 98 installation disk, then go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and update your Windows components.

In such a case,will my java program not throw any Exception? And what is the exact component which I need to install? Is it TCP\IP networking?
