    Hi,
    I have a question regarding networking between two computers.

    I am using a software which captures and does live data transfer. Now when I try to access this data (Live data transfer)using a code in C++ in a remote computer, there is always a loss in data (in essence the data I am trying to retrieve on remote computer (say X) should be consecutive, though there can be a time delay in getting the output, but I my case the data X itself is missing 13-14 values)

    Can u please suggest any method to overcome this shortcoming.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, we'd obviously have to know a LOT more about the application and exactly how the data is being transferred. I presume you're using Windows Sockets? You may have to provide buffering in the source machine and have a TCP connection to avoid dropped packets. It sounds like you're using UDP connections, which are not guaranteed to transfer all packets.

    Hey Thanks for the help... As you had mentioned I am using windows sockets and have provided buffering too with TCP connection. But still for some reason it doesn't work for us. The surprising part is that the application works well on the computers of the company who provided us the software used for live data transfer. The issue comes in only when it's run on your computers here. Any other suggestions?

    Also, do you think the software needs/ not compatible with a particular driver that's probably needed/ to be removed from our computer?
