Client Server program, a tiny problem.
I made a client server program that is working like a charm(on a single computer).
I happen to have a virtual machine on this computer and tried to load the client there and keep the server running on the host OS.
I cant make the client to see the server. It might have to do with the fact that both OS have the same ip and when i try to connect to the server IP the client recognize that its own!
Any way, the real question is this: Do i have to do anything else if the client and the server are not on the same network? all my previous client server programs were for academic reasons, and were all tested in a lab, but now i dont have a second computer on my network, so i cant even test it within the same network.
any help pls?
