GeneralThreading and Client Server Technologies Pin

Since I wanted the system to provide a monitor (capable of being able to be touchscreen) and still provide a streaming type of media (shared between monitors), I have decided to investigate the possibility of creating a server component that would have seperate displays (apps) connecting via TCP/IP and the server being where the media is run and controlled. The only problem is that I have no experience with threading TCP/IP sockets in C# and this is turning out to be a chore. There's plenty of examples but most don't work. Frown | :(

But by combining several examples that have sections that I feel would help, I've created a basic server that accepts clients and converses on a very basic level. Since I was able to get the basics working well, I figgured that I could keep building on it and addind functionality as I continue along.

I won't dignify your question with an answer.

Yes, I program in VB6, but only because I'm addicted to eating!
