Yep, the question is pretty noobish, and it is going to get more noobish, so don't say i didn't warn ya!!
1)What is a good free socket server, i can use for learning?(don't say electroserver, please)
2)Where can i find some good tutorials on php socket functions?(I tried php.net, but i lost myself in the huge documentation....i need something which is more tageted to the beginner)
I am trying to make a two player Tic-Tac-Toe type game....but, I don't want to run a server from my computer, but i want, one of the flash clients to act as the server. Is it possible to make a flash client communicate with another one, without using a database in between?(pipeline) ......i mean i can write data to a database, and then the other client can periodically check and retrieve it! but i don't want that, i want the two clients to communicate within themselves, without using a database or text file or such. Is it possible? and if not...what will be the closest alternative?
