Chat alike Application

Apr 12, 2013 at 2:19 PM
Hello,

i am currently testing your Framework (is excellent) but i have a question.
Is it possible to have multiple Clients which communicate over one Server using same tcp.port
like a Chat application?

Background:
I have a one host which should control multiple Processes over the same tcp.port

How can i accomplish this?

best regards

Hello tomtailor,

I am not exactly shure what you mean by using the same port. If your clients are running on different machines, it is no problem that all of them use the same port number. Or do you mean that you have multiple processes running on the same machine and want to use the same port number for all of them? In that case the easiest solution would to use WCF as transport service, and use the WCF port sharing service (there is an example in the usage demos for this). With this you can have multiple processes on one port, using a different name for each process.
Please tell me if that answered your question - if not, maybe your can give some more details about your application.

Best regards
Thomas
