I am using eclipse 3.7.2 and for the last several weeks I have been stumped. I am trying to write a socket application and am easily able to send both binary and text data to the socket which is read by the socket server. Unfortunately when the server sends a reply I am unable to read it ( it doesn't exist ). However, NetMon v 3.4 displays the frame which the server sends back to the client. I have tried closing the client socket at various places in the program but nothing seems to help. Is there some kind of bug in eclipse which I need to know about. Pls advise. Thx.
