I have created a client and server program using a TCP connection. The client displays the server's ip address in a listbox.
But the client needs to be able to connect with servers from anywhere and so i need to create a master server.
The servers would connect to this master server. The master server will store the addresses of any servers that connect to it.
The client will then connnect to the master server, get the list, and display the list in the listbox.
The user will then select a server and get connected to this server
please message me if you are interested and i will send you the code i have so far. The client and server are already done so its just the master server that i need
just get a web hoster to host your "master server" or if you have a static IP (and are not planning on getting much traffic) you can host by yourself. Also about the master server program: it should be relatively simple, have a program that acts like a server (probably similar to the one you have) and when it makes a connection with a "server" it gets the details and adds them to its list; when it makes a connection with a "client" program it should send the list to the client. You should also have it periodically "ping" the "servers" to check that they are alive and if not remove them form the list.
since most of the work is already done then would you mind helping me with the code for when it makes a connection with a "server" it gets the details and adds them to its list, when it makes a connection with a "client" program it should send the list to the client?
Sure, contact me at this Temporary Email (one week window):
I don't write MFC programs, so if MFC is required, I will not be of much assistance.
Also, I am quite busy, so it make take a couple hours to respond to emails, and make sure to provide a lot of information.
