    forceing port connections

    i do not want to get flamed for this because it might sound like i want to learn about DOS, which i do not

    but

    is there a way i can force multiple connections to a given port?

    this is to test my VNC server and web server

    Wouldn't it be more fun to try this yourself or learn how to do it yourself??? What's the point in it if you don't learn anything?

    Regardless.. this can be done quite easily in python:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env python
    
    
    import threading
    import socket
    import sys
    
    
    class threadedConnect ( threading.Thread ):
    
            def __init__ ( self, host, port, timeout ) :
    
                    self.host = host # host to connect to
                    self.port = port # port to connnect to
                    self.timeout = timeout # 0 for no timeout
                    threading.Thread.__init__ ( self )
    
            def run ( self ) :
    
                    self.sock = socket.socket ( socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM )
                    self.sock.settimeout( self.timeout )
                    self.sock.connect ( ( self.host, self.port ) )
                    print self.sock.recv( 1024 )
    
    
    #Init Variables
    
    host = sys.argv[ 1 ]
    port = int ( sys.argv[ 2 ] )
    timeout = int ( sys.argv [ 3 ] )
    connCount = int ( sys.argv [ 4 ] )
    
    
    for x in xrange ( connCount ) : #Number of connections to make
    
            threadedConnect( host, port, timeout).start()
    How do you run it... how does it work... what do you need... Well that's up to you... but there's a very simple script for you (Yes I realize I could have made it easier... but where's the fun in that)... Also I didn't incorporate any error checking... so you'll die on errors... but it'll still do what you want.

    well i should now take up programming!!
    read a few books but they ALL start off with 'hello world' and do not get more exciting than that

    well i have run it and yes there are errors!!
    no idea what IndexError means but having a look on web to see
    does not like the import socket line or host = sys.argv [1]

    You will need to learn how to walk before you're able to run

    ok done some playing around with the code
    to no avail

    i changed this
    host = sys.argv[ 1 ]

    to this
    host = int ( sys.argv[ 1 ] )


    but that did not work
    and IndexError seems to be a universal type of error in many programming languages

    Hey Hey

    If you've got Python, you've got everything you need to run the script and there are no changes that have to be made... it works perfectly the way it is.

    I'd suggest you go look up why sys.argv[] is used... That will be your clue...
