Hi all, I have one socket connection program as
// For server



//for client



when I run this program it create connection and send and data from server successfully. But when I use other machine IP as

Socket sock = new Socket("10.22.35.32",13267);

then on client machine it shows error as connection time-out. and there is no connection established between server and client. Why is it so? I started server program on one pc and run client program from another pc.

When I interchange client and server then it works perfectly. But not work for other combination why is it so?

Sounds like a networking issue. Make sure you can ping the server machine from the client machine. If that works use telnet to check if you can connect to it: If that already fails then something is blocking access, probably a firewall either on the server machine, on the client machine or on a router between the two.

Thanks Rob for response. Yes because of firewall it is blocking access.

Then you need to add exceptions to the firewall, to allow this traffic.
