C++ Sockets - Simple server and client chat (linux)
A simple socket programming which creates a connection between two terminals on linux. This was my second semester final project, so I thought I'll share with you.
- Ubuntu 12.0 LTS or higher
- G++ compiler for Ubuntu
- A text editor
- Compile the server.cpp file first and then the client.cpp file.
- To send a message, run your client.cpp and type "your-message *" *Notice that you need to add an asterisk at the end of each sentence to send a message.
- Same goes for server.cpp
This code is limited to one client only. There is only one-to-one connection. To have multiple connections you need to know about threading.
