My reason for doing the Server side first is that IMO it is the easiest to test, in that you can use Telnet (or something similiar such as PuTTY) to test whether the server side of the connection works properly and that it responds to commands correctly. I also add output messages to the code so that I can track what the server is receiving and how it is repsonding to these request. Using this approach has proved very successful as I have been able to test each part as it has been coded.

Security Now 22: The WMF Backdoor
Flash: Steve Gibson has been working with the WMF vulnerability and is now convinced that this is an intentional backdoor into Windows added by Microsoft.
Microsoft has patched the WMF vulnerability in Windows 2000 and XP, but in his research for a fix for Windows 95/98/Me Steve has come up with a blockbuster. It is his considered opinion that the WMF vulnerability could not have been a mistake. It was an intentional backdoor inserted into Windows by Microsoft for reasons unknown. Listen for details.
Steve also hosts transcripts, show notes, and a 16kbps version of the show for the bandwidth impaired at grc.com.
This NeXT workstation (a NeXTcube) was used by Tim Berners-Lee as the first Web server on the World Wide Web. Today, it is kept in Microcosm, the public museum at the Meyrin site of CERN, in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland.
The document resting on the keyboard is a copy of "Information Management: A Proposal," which was Berners-Lee's original proposal for the World Wide Web.
The label on the cube itself has the following text: "This machine is a server. DO NOT POWER IT DOWN!!"
Just below the keyboard (not shown) is a label which reads: "At the end of the 80s, Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web using this Next computer as the first Web server."

I hope this message finds you hale and healthy.I am Mr.Joseph Chau of Investment Banking,Union Bank Of China.On July 6, 2004,our client Mr.Irvin poot,a businessman,made a numbered fixed deposit for 6 (six) calendar months,with a value of US$20.5m only in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him and no response came from him. Another notification was sent early February and still no response came from him.
The Bank officially sent a two-man delegate to his residence in Malaysia were he resides only to find out that the business mogul and his family perished in the Tsunami disaster.After further investigations,it was also discovered that Mr.Irvin Poot did not declare any next of kin in his official papers,including the paper work of his bank deposit.So, Twenty million, Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to claim it.According to the laws of my country, at the expiration of one year and eight months the funds will revert to the ownership of Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr.Irvin Poot to enable you receive the funds.Lets put heads together to claim and transfer these funds out of Hong Kong and use it judiciously.I have contacted an Attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back you up as the next of kin to Mr.Irvin Poot,all that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your full names and Address including your direct phone and fax numbers for my Attorney to commence his job.Endeavour to get back to me via my confidential email. to enable us commence.
Compliments, Joseph Chau.
