Socket Questions-App academy Lessons 44&45

Post by sefrojones » Tue Mar 18, 2014 4:29 am


I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I did not see a specific forum for the app academy. I am having trouble with the chat server/client that the lesson builds. It works great on localhost. When I try to connect over the internet it does dot work at all and gives a socket error. I'm thinking it has something to do with port forwarding, but I'm not sure how to proceed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Sefro,

It could be a port issue that could be causing the connection issue. I would check that ports are being forwarded appropriately in your test application. More information on how to do this can be found at the following site-

I would also recommend looking at a fellow LiveCode users sample chat stack-

He gives you access to the source code which should give you some assistance but I am unsure how up to date his server side of things are

Kind Regards,
