- Math Quiz Game
A simple command line math quiz game server (and TCP/IP client/server programming sample). Players connect to it via telnet on port 5001.
Since this application accepts connections on your local machine, it requires your permission to run outside the secure sandbox. Don’t run applications like this unless you trust the developer. You can get and run from the source, too. This server has no user interface, so you may need to kill its process when you are done (not necessary on Mac OS).
