Step 7: Using the Program/Conclusion

ok now im going to tell you how to use the program

in visual basic click file then make project1.exe save it to your desktop
if there are any errors leave a comment and i will try to help you

now go to where you made the program and double click it twice and two programs should pop up
on one click host and on the other click connect and on the one you clicked host on it should say: Connected to:

now type in a name for both of them and you can send messages between the two

it works on LAN and it might work on WAN but im not sure

leave comments letting me know how i did or if you have questions or if you just feel like it
if you liked it or didn't like it rate it

Hi, i am coding in VB2008, it worked so far but this part doesn't work @ all for me :<br/><br/> sckMain.state &lt;&gt; sckClose<br/><hr/><br/>sckMain.accept requestid<br/><hr/><br/>Please e-mail me with a solution asap as i really like this proggy u made! <br/>de7ox@hotmail.com <br/>Thanks!<br/>
I created a chat program without winsock and its works
<p>pls mail me the procedure and code .... nikkuraj786@gmail.com</p>
the correct code is:If sckMain.CtlState &lt;&gt; 0 Then<br> <br> sckMain.Accept(e.requestID)
how is it possible can you explain
How did you do it?
Dim proCedure As String<br> sckMain.Close()<br> sckMain.Accept(e.requestID)<br> sckMain.Accept(e.requestID)<br> proCedure = txtLog.Text &amp; &quot;Connected to: &quot; &amp; sckMain.RemoteHostIP &amp; vbCrLf<br> proCedure = txtLog.Text<br>you will need to fix the lines, but this is what I have.
Winsock1.Close() Winsock1.Accept(e.requestID)
i don't know how to get this program to work with VB2008 you need to make changes to the code, sorry

I need help here the program is running correctly but there is no lines between the messages help
<p>brilliant thank you</p>
<p>~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~</p><p>Well guys You cannot connect to another computer through WAN until you port forward it and insert the correct IP..</p><p>You can use HAMACHI also but it will require the other person to use hamachi too..</p><p>Okay now see my tutorial:</p><p>You need to host the main IP on ur net or it should be a VPS in which u open a port or you port forward the port the chat will listen to.</p><p>After port forward keep the VPS/PC/OS on and make sure you dont have dynamic ip that changes each hour, now the chat server will be active and people can join the chat room with your IPv4 Online IP, type ipconfig in cmd.exe or just whatismyipaddress.com and you are done..</p><p>Add the port you forwarded in the box then click Connect.</p><p>and the IP of the host..</p><p>~Regards</p><p>K. Hendrews</p>
<p>It only works on 2 users? I tried to connect another pc but it failed</p>
<p>Where is the winsock control in Visual Studio 2013?</p>
<p>I am running my chat application on 3 computers. but they are not connecting. how should I set IP and port address of both server side and client side computers.</p>
<p>thank you!</p>

<p>please help me with 40020 error..</p>
<p>this is working very well in the same pc and thanx a lot for that but i've tried to make it work on two but was not able to do so. can you plz tell me the way how to do it?</p>
<p>I think this program will only work in localhost so you need Hamachi to create virtual localhost and connect different computers to each other</p>

I haven't been on here for a while, so sorry i haven't gotten a chance to reply to a lot of you asking questions or having problems, the way i wrote this chat program i believe it only works with the older vb 6.0 the newer versions do not have the winsock control module, i am not sure how to use it either, i know its possible though
