My hosting company no longer permits connection to any port other than standard ones and I am in the middle of a project that is best solved via sockets (I think).
I use a mysql database and connect to it via php. I need 4 people to use client sockets to connect to a server socket with access to the database. Small datapackets would be sent when necessary from clients to server and back. (I am building the interface in Flash but other methods not a problem).
I used to do a lot of this a while back with no problem but now I cannot find a hosting company that will let me do it.
2 full days spent calling, emailing companies and no joy!
Anyone know a hosting company that will permit it?
OR have things moved on and there is a better method?
Maky thanks in advance.
