Hi, I have recently got my feet wet in socket programming. I have successfully made a simple program that just passes objects over a socket connection and it runs fine. On the local network that is. When I run both the server and the client side of my application on the same computer using the local host IP address it works. Now, I want to learn how I can have the server side of my program running on the server that my website is currently being hosted on (it is hosted with godaddy, I'm not sure if that matters for anything) or if that is even possible. I have heard of people making the server an applet, but that hardly sounds like an ideal solution to me. Also, making my IP address a static IP address and using my computer as a server is also not what I had in mind. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
