Would you please paste some part of client code (socket related functions only) so that we can check it.

Dear Piyush,

Thanks for your reply

Server Program.


void handlesocket(int newsockfd)
{
char *buffer, *temp, *temp2;
int n,i;

if (newsockfd < 0)
error("ERROR on accept");

buffer = new char[960000];
temp = new char[16];
temp[0] = '\0';
temp2 = new char[1];
temp2[0] = '\0';
i = 0;
do
{
n = read(newsockfd,temp2, 1);
if(temp2[0]=='@') break;
temp[i++] = temp2[0];
temp[i] = '\0';
}
while(n > 0);

printf("Waiting for client -----> %s bytes\n",temp);
n = 0;
do
{
buffer[0] = '\0';
//printf("hello");
n += read(newsockfd,buffer,atoi(temp));
buffer[n] = '\0';
writeintofile(buffer);
printf("-----------------\n%s-------------\n",buffer);
}
while(n < atoi(temp));

printf("Recieved ------------>%d bytes\n", n);

n = write(newsockfd,&temp,strlen(temp)-1);
printf("Sent back ------------>%s \n", temp);



if (n < 0) error("ERROR writing to socket");
close(newsockfd);

n += read(newsockfd,buffer,atoi(temp));
In this statement for what purpose you have written atoi(temp) in third parameter. I think That should be the number of bytes u r attempting to read from file descripter newsockfd.
