If you are not using an existing service port, you can use anything up to 64k from memory. Years ago I did some work at both HTTP and UDP communications between 2 computers and it worked OK but I cheated and use high level code to do it, not raw winsock.

and ping doesn't connect successfully either if i completely disable the windows firewall.  :(
But i will keep trying :biggrin:.

All you need to do is enable ICMP echo request on the target PC. If there is no rule for that you need to make a new rule, but I think windows 8 has the rule but is disabled.
