Run server as application

  1. Jun 18, 2005 #1
    I have written this logger echo server. WHen i execute it it starts as a process in the background. How do i force it to run as application? (in cmd window for example or do i have to have gui?)

    im on win machine.

    I don't know how windows would do this but in linux/unix you can start an application and send it to the background by using the bg command. You can send to back to the foreground by using the fg command.

    thanx , thats a next step to install unix/linux a stop using windows. But i have hard time detecting my network card in linux. I would love to stop using windows.

    anyway, yeah the problem is i want to run the server in foreground on windows. Even when i execute it from cmd it still goes to process. This way i do not know what the error are ....(during connection and output from the server)
