Socket programming question
 
Hello All

I m new to linux and i m using socket programming to access data from one server to another server.

both Client and server i have written in C i m sending some data to server. after some time i m getting below error.


ERROR writing to socket: Bad address


earlier my client use maximum 2MB memory and when i get this error on server my client usage may go up to 1GB i dont know wats wrong.


Please help me

You are not serious are you? This has to be a trick question.

Quote:

"Help Me!!" or "URGENT"
To you this is urgent, but to anyone else on a list where free advice is given. Also, how does this title describe the problem in any way, shape or form?

both Client and server i have written in C i m sending some data to server.
So where is the code?
What data?
Quote:

ERROR writing to socket: Bad address
Where are you receiving this error message? (ie. a log, on screen, etc)
As this makes no reference to a line number it leads me to believe (maybe wrongly but you have included no other detail) that this is an error catch you may
have written into the code. If so, you should know what would cause such an issue.

Again without code and a lot more explanation, my pluck the answer out of the air would be memory leak.

In short, help us to help you. If you do not provide anything tangible for us to help with the question will fall by the way side as it is too hard
to find solutions for you.

Dear GURU,

Thanks for your reply

here is the server code
Code:


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);
        free(buffer);
        free(temp);
        free(temp2);       
}

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
        int sockfd, newsockfd, portno;
        socklen_t clilen;

        struct sockaddr_in serv_addr, cli_addr;
        //added to make use ofre address
        //setsockopt(SO_REUSEADDR)
        if (argc < 2) {
                fprintf(stderr,"ERROR, no port provided\n");
                exit(1);
        }
        sockfd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
        if (sockfd < 0)
                error("ERROR opening socket");
        bzero((char *) &serv_addr, sizeof(serv_addr));
        portno = atoi(argv[1]);
        serv_addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
        serv_addr.sin_addr.s_addr = INADDR_ANY;
        serv_addr.sin_port = htons(portno);
        if (bind(sockfd, (struct sockaddr *) &serv_addr,
                sizeof(serv_addr)) < 0)
                error("ERROR on binding");
        while(1)
        {
                listen(sockfd,5);
                clilen = sizeof(cli_addr);
                newsockfd = accept(sockfd, (struct sockaddr *) &cli_addr, &clilen);
                handlesocket(newsockfd);
        }
        close(sockfd);
        return 0;
}

here is the client code

Code:

        unsigned short port = atoi(portasstring);
        int retval, loopflag = 0;
        int i, loopcount, maxloop=-1;
        unsigned int addr;
        int socket_type = DEFAULT_PROTO;
        struct sockaddr_in server;
        struct hostent *hp;
        char *temp;
        char *temp1=new char[48000];
       

        sprintf(temp1,"%s%s",formatasstring,data);

        sprintf(data,"%s",temp1);

        WSADATA wsaData;
        SOCKET  conn_socket;
        if ((retval = WSAStartup(0x202, &wsaData)) != 0)
        {
                fprintf(stderr,"Client: WSAStartup() failed with error %d\n", retval);
                WSACleanup();
        }
       
        addr = inet_addr(server_name);
        hp = gethostbyaddr((char *)&addr, 4, AF_INET);

        memset(&server, 0, sizeof(server));
        memcpy(&(server.sin_addr), hp->h_addr, hp->h_length);
        server.sin_family = hp->h_addrtype;
        server.sin_port = htons(port);
       
        conn_socket = socket(AF_INET, socket_type, 0); /* Open a socket */
        if (conn_socket <0 )
        {
                WSACleanup();
                return;
        }
       
        if (connect(conn_socket, (struct sockaddr*)&server, sizeof(server)) == SOCKET_ERROR)
        {
                WSACleanup();
                return;
        }
       
        temp = new char[255];
        temp[0] = '\0';
        sprintf(temp, "%d@\0", strlen(data));
       
        retval = send(conn_socket, temp, strlen(temp) , 0);
        printf("%s\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n",temp);
        if (retval != SOCKET_ERROR)
        {
               
        }

        retval = send(conn_socket, data, strlen(data) , 0);
        //printf("%s",data);
       
        if (retval != SOCKET_ERROR)
        {
               
                temp[0] = '\0';
                retval = recv(conn_socket, temp, 255, 0);
                temp[retval+1] = '\0';
                printf("Server Received:%s\n",temp);
               
        }
       

        free(temp);
        free(temp1);
        closesocket(conn_socket);
        WSACleanup();
}

Well firstly, please go back to previous post and place inside [code][/code] tags to keep the formatting and make the code at least a little readable.

Secondly, you still need to help us to help you, a swath of code says that you have copied / written a lot of code.
What debugging have you done?
Have you placed print statements or other output modes to collect information surrounding the variables near where you make calls to sockets?

The general idea here is that the effort you put in will be returned.

Couldn't have said it better. Also gajananh999, you need to change your post subject...subjects of either "Help me" or "Urgent" are discouraged, and you've gone out of your way to do BOTH.

I'll go out on a limb and say (just from the error message), that the address is wrong/blocked, or the other side of the connection is somehow failing. Have you checked it? Firewall(s) in place? What's the network environment where you're running this?
