I am new to socket programming, and i want to write one program for client server socket communication.

I want to establish connection between two Machine lets say Computer A and Computer B both are in LAN.

Computer A Opens server socket, and wait for a particular port for client to send request.

Now computer B(Client) sends request to A, A accepts the connection. and send below information to computer B

- Message per Seconds (message/sec computer b can send to computer a)
- length of the message in byte, the computer b should send the exact length of message to computer a and when computer a response should be of the same length, content of the message cam be anything.

Now how do i handle the scenario of message per second ???

What have you tried so far?

The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
