A first hazy notion of a fileserver/-client (the TSNE_V3.bi can be found here , either copy & paste the source code or click at "Dateidownload"): Server: #Include Once "TSNE_V3.bi" Type Client_Type V_InUse As UByte V_TSNEID As UInteger V_IPA As String V_Data As String End Typ...

Re: Where have I gone wrong

And thanks for clearing up the thing about the tills being the server. Sorry, I'm afraid there's a misunderstanding. What I meant to act as server is the main control program running on the mainframe. Any other part of the system that wants to send or receive something sends a request to the server...

Re: Where have I gone wrong

Slowly the picture becomes clearer. :-) Next question: What about the network connection of the tills? I suppose every till has its own computer with a network card (or a built-in network chip) and thus its own IP address. How is that IP adress determined (dynamic or static)? And what are the tills ...

Re: Where have I gone wrong

Alright, and I suppose what you call "modules" are little programs running simultaneously on one computer, and you want them to communicate with one another and with the tills via TCP, right?

Not sure if it helps, but maybe try the include without "once"?

Sorry, but I don't understand this remark. The competition theme is writing a game with FB, and that program is a game, written with FB. Or am I missing something?

@MrSwiss: The complete sentence reads: Free for NON-comercial use! For comercial usage send me a mail -> FreeBasic[at]DeltaLabs.de or IRC and u get a free usage So it should be no problem to get the permission to use this library.

Re: Where have I gone wrong

The separate exe are add on modules to enhance the PoS program. So they're all clients? What about the server? Could you give me a short description of your intranet? Alas, libcurl is only a client library and not suitable for servers. But there's another library named TSNE_V3 , for both Windows an...

I'm not sure what do you mean exactly, grindstone, but reskining an older finished or close to finished work will be heavily penalized during scoring. I am expecting people to be open about that, at minimum. Using old code and engines is allowed. What I mean is the flight operator simulation I'm wo...

Re: Where have I gone wrong

The answer to all questions is "yes". The host part of the URL contains the address of the server that you want to connect to. This can be the fully qualified domain name of the server, the local network name of the machine on your network or the IP address of the server or machine represe...
