>u asking me if i cant code why should i be asking about sockets?
No, I was asking you what you know so we don't waste time going over things that we don't need to. But if you want to be a dick about it, just say the word and I'll ignore you so that I can do more interesting things.

>"yes i can"
This answer is worthless. So, since you seem incapable of giving me enough information to properly help you, I'll require that you post a complete program that shows an honest attempt to solve the problem.

Hello, I have the same issue to solve. My client is on wingoze, and the server is on linux. Now my file to send is a picture :(. Yes, I know how to work with sockets(text sent from one end to another and back). So Narue, you're suggesting to open the file for reading ( pf=fopen("file.jpg","r")) and copy character by character into a buffer, the send the buffer(this is on the server side)? :D....and in the client, receive the buffer and create a .jpg file: pf = fopen("newfile.jpg","w"), and put the buffer there? :-|.

My client is on wingoze

What is wingoze? Whatever it is, it may be an Operating system, and there should be a socket API for it. Look that up.

sorry for this late late reply, but i haven't noticed the notification mail in my inbox :( . wingoze=Windows. And anyways, thanks for your post, i solved that problem a looong time ago.

@niku4u - Sorry, but I don't have the code, since I had this problem almost 2 years ago...it's been a long time.



Following is my client code....I am receiving data of equal size of JPG file... so if anyone can help me out with reading buffer properly and writing it in to jpg file at client side

    memset(buffer,0x0,BUFFER_SIZE);    //  init line 
    rc = read(sd, buffer, BUFFER_SIZE);
    if( rc > 0)
        size +=rc;
//      printf("  %d  ",size);

     pFile = fopen ( "new.jpg" , "wb" );
     fwrite (buffer, 1 , size , pFile );
     fclose (pFile);

printf("\n   Total received response bytes: %d\n",size);

// return

yeah sure. we can help.
