     I want to promote the idea of giving your client-side apps a reconnection feature. This is convenient if you need your clients to automatically reconnect to the server. Good for server-client cafe management and networked desktop locking. I do believe that there are other ideas and ways to do this and if you DO have a better idea, I'll appreciate it if you could share it with me since I need this feature for a school project. I have included a simple server-client chat to demonstrate this feature. To test, compile both server and clients into exe format then just run any number of clients either with the server running or not. Then just close the server and then run it again to see your clients reconnecting. That's it. Hope this helps and if you feel like it please do vote. Cheerio!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
