Hello all,
im quite new to network programming,im writing c code which dealt with transferring files using TCP over Sockets,
In my code,client sends the header information(information about the file ) to the server ,the code works fine
but received file size is sporadically a small than the file that is sent...
can anybody explain????????????????

typedef struct
{
    int i;
    int j;
    char buff[16384] //16k
}BUFFER;



for(i = 0 ;i < m ;i++)
{
    for(j = 0 ;j <n;j++)
    {
        if(send(sd,recvbuff,sizeof(BUFFER),0) == -1)
        {
            perror("send");
            exit(1);
        }
        //recv ack
    }
}
