I am doing a client server program, The program works on the same computer (localhost), but if I give the name of another computer "MAYA-PC" I am getting the following error MAYA-PC

at Source)

why is this happening. Both the computers are connected to the same network

But on my computer MAYA-PC, which have both client and server program, even if I give socket = new Socket("MAYA-PC", 7777);....I am getting output. I thought that it may be a network problem and tried working client and server programs on different computers on another network too. But I got the same error.

Please Help me.

Instead of name, if you use IP address does it work?

I agree. Here's the link:
