I have programmed a working server client application, which works perfectly on the normal internet.
Now I tried it in the intended setting of an ad-hoc (wifi) Network and the application fails with (“Actively Refused Connection”) on port 10000.
Firewalls are down and I switched the Ad-hoc to a Home Network (by default it is Public). It continues to refuse the connection. Since the Netbooks are not always available to me, I would need a guess, if ad-hoc refuse by default high port numbers.
Any ideas about the specialities in an ad-hoc Network I have to take care off?
The ad-hoc works fine since months with another software (not from me) and VLC and so on.
OS: Windows 7 Basic on two netbooks.
Development Machine is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
Although I dont think that makes a difference as the program works fine on the Netbooks with Access Point Network. I never hooked the Development machine up to an adhoc.
