Socket Server/Monitor (chat)

  • Use the Socket Server/Monitor window to launch a server socket (in the top half of the window) or to connect a socket to a server (bottom half of the window).
  • You can open as many of these windows as you need.
  • These are useful for attaching to a process that accepts a socket.
  • Some debuggers (php) work this way by sending you debug messages through the attached socket.

Notice this dialog is in two similar sections. The top is for the server and the bottom is for the client.
