I made two simple client and server socket chat programs.
Client connects to and interacts with the server application perfectly on localhost, but I can't get the client to connect over directly connected LAN.
The client/server are connecting to/listening on port 2869 - the only port I found that would allow the server machine to be telnet'd into. No PC firewalls on either machine or routers that could possibly block connection.
Any insights as to why my client machine won't connect to a server machine over a local network?
