The Client Socket Program we are gonna see in this article is continuation of the Server Socket Program. The Client Socket Program is also a Windows based application. Client connect to the Port 8888 of the Server Socket Program, and the IP Address (Computer Name) here we give as 127.0.0.1, because the Server and client running on the same machine.
clientSocket.Connect ("127.0.0.1", 8888)
When client gets connected, it reads data from NetworkStream, and also writes to NetworkStream. When you start the client program you will get message client started. When we press the button at the bottom it sends a message to Server and also receives a message from Server.
Public Class Form1
Dim clientSocket As New System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient()
Dim serverStream As NetworkStream
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim serverStream As NetworkStream = clientSocket.GetStream()
Dim outStream As Byte() = _
System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("Message from Client$")
serverStream.Write(outStream, 0, outStream.Length)
Dim inStream(10024) As Byte
serverStream.Read(inStream, 0, CInt(clientSocket.ReceiveBufferSize))
Dim returndata As String = _
msg("Data from Server : " + returndata)
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Label1.Text = "Client Socket Program - Server Connected ..."
Sub msg(ByVal mesg As String)
TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text + Environment.NewLine + " >> " + mesg
Before you run the Client Socket Program you should start Server Socket Program first. For more details of running this program, take a look at the VB.NET Socket Programming article I have posted before.
