    Default help needed (tic tac toe problem)


    I'm not sure this is the right place for this but I need help solving the following problem:

    Client-server tic-tac-toe. The task is composed by two programs: client and server. The
    server is a “stupid” player: it always selects a random move, of course out of the possible ones. The
    client part is operated by the user. He is always the second player. The task has the following elements:
    1. TCP connection between the client and the server.
    2. When started, the server waits for the client to connect. Then it selects a random move. The
    server has to recognize who is the winner, after the game is over.
    3. The client selects its move in text format using the coordinates (for example (0 0) means the
    upper left corner). If the move is not possible, the server responds with a message that this field
    is occupied.
    4. After each move, a character table is printed in the client console, for example:

    O | | X
    | O |
    X | |

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    Go ahead and post your code and ask any questions about.

    One thing you'll need to define is the "protocol" for communications between the client and server.
    What messages will be sent and how will they be recognized?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
