I'm testing a Server/Client socket in C. At the same time I'd like to
see my packets go through the network and for that I'm using Ethereal.
As you may know, Ethereal doesn't work in loopback way, so I looked for
a different solution:
I have my server socket in my Windows machine, and the client socket in
a Lunix machine at a certain university. They communicate each other
through port 9877. But the communication seems to fail.
I understand it is something about the firewall. I opened up my windows
firewall for port 9877 though I think the Linux machine (for which I
don't have administrator rights) is still shut down from outside access.
What do you think should I do? Is there a way to give the socket in the
Linux machine the rights (user/password) to access to/from outside w/o
being an administrator? I have to connect to this university Linux
machine with SSH...
Thanks for your help,
PS. I just installed the MS Loopback Adapter, but I havent' tried it yet.
