Hello!

I've just hit a big problem, I've implemented the telnet server client program into my program and hit a huge problem I completely overlooked at the start.

It would appear that you can only send from one client to server and back, but not from the server to all connected clients (and I'm sure I proved you could do this at the start).

The concept is for a client machine to send a packet of data to the server and the server echo that back out to all the clients. I've altered the original code to echo but it only sends to the first connected client.

So my question is can this be done or am I barking up the wrong tree here?

must be IP on a LAN.

There have been several chat-style servers made using Telnet HiLo as a base.
