Play poker over TCP internet connection

Download: PokerClient and PokerServer | VB6 Source Code


For a quick demo on a single computer: run the test.bat file. This will
open the poker server and two clients. The clients will automatically
connect to the PokerServer running on the computer, login, and start a
game. Click on the cards to change them, then press the Done button.
Now place your bets.

To run over a network (or internet), run the PokerServer program on a
computer and make sure the filewall is configured to accept incoming
connection to port 9596.

On a different computer run PokerClient and enter the IP address (or
hostname) of the PokerServer computer when prompted. Select “New Game”
from the Game menu.

Run the PokerClient on up to 5 additional computers and select “Join
Game” from the menu and select game number 1.

Have Fun!
