    Socket TCP

    How do we set up a socket TCP connection on Windows 2000 Server? We have a client who sends data through a port that way, but they don't know how the previous vendor set it up.

    I did find Socket Workbench, a utility for monitoring ports, but wondered if we can set it up in 2000 without the third-party software.

    Thanks!

    What's the port? It could just be an FTP site. To set that up, you need to 'install' IIS. You can then create an FTP site, and you can set the port to whatever you want. By default I think FTP is port 21, but it can literally be any port (1 to 64k). The first thousand or so have 'default' meanings (such as 25 and 110 for POP3 and SMTP).
