Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

int main(int argc,char **argv)
int listenfd,connfd,retbind;
struct sockaddr_in servaddr;
char buff[MAX];
time_t ticks;

printf("socket error");
servaddr.sin_addr.s_addr=htonl(INADDR_ANY); //instead of this use

if((retbind=bind(listenfd,(struct sockaddr *)&servaddr,sizeof(servaddr)))<0)
printf("bind error %dn",retbind);
connfd=accept(listenfd,(struct sockaddr *) NULL,NULL);
return 0;
