How to make a client and server connect on two different computers?

Sep 13 '13 at 13:42

Hi, I'm trying to program a client/server on two different computers, and make them connect, by using "SSL client example" and "SSL server example" (which are chilkat products), but they are not connecting. even though I've changed the sslServerHost (client-side) to the server's IP address. And I even turned off the AntiViruses at both computers.

NOTE: I'm using Wi-Fi, and when I checked the IP address of both computers, they were the same. can this be the problem????

The LastErrorText at the server side is: ChilkatLog: AcceptNextConnection: DllDate: Dec 13 2012 UnlockPrefix: RANIAASocket Username: RANIAM:rania Architecture: Little Endian; 32-bit Language: C++ Builder XE2 VerboseLogging: 0 fd: 0x17c objectId: 1 listenPort: 5555 AcceptSslConnection: maxWaitMs: 20000 m_idleTimeoutMs: 10000 Timeout waiting to accept connection. --AcceptSslConnection Failed. --AcceptNextConnection --ChilkatLog


You certainly wouldn't want to computers on the same network with the same IP address. I would first solve that problem first, and then see how things stand...
