    Socket Errors - Urgent

      I'm am sending files from a client to a server using a socket and server socket combination, with the buffered Input and Output stream. When I'm sending files accross using the loop back address on the local machine I have no problems and can set the byte array to any size. When I try and send across a network I have two problems
      1) - if the byte array is 1024 bytes or less it send really slowly
      2) - with a larger byte array I get an IO error - type code out of range 0

      Can any one help me with this problem, below is some sample code assume a socket connection has been set up with buffered input and output streams

      input = socket.getInputStream(); // assume this has been set up correctly

      //Method to read byte arrays from a socket
      public byte[] readBytes(byte[] bytes) throws Exception{
      catch(IOException e){
      // this is the excption I am always getting
      throw new Exception("An IO Error has Occured: " + e.getMessage());
      return bytes;

      //Sample block of code to recieve files

      String response = "";
                File real = new File(".\\Shared\\" +fileName);
                File temp = new File(".\\Shared\\temp" +fileName);
                temp.createNewFile(); // ensure files are not overwritten if canceled by creating a temporary file

                boolean canceled = false;

                FileOutputStream output = new FileOutputStream(temp);

                response = (String) readObject(); // recieve size of file

                int numberOfBytes = Integer.parseInt(response);
                byte[] bytes;

                while(!response.equalsIgnoreCase("Finished") && !response.equalsIgnoreCase("Quit")){
                     response = (String) readObject();
                     if(response.equalsIgnoreCase("Quit")){ //cancel upload if user send quit
                          canceled = true;
                     else if(!response.equalsIgnoreCase("Finished")){
                          bytes = new byte[Integer.parseInt(response)];
                          bytes = readBytes(bytes); //recieve bytes
                          output.write(bytes); //output bytes
                          dl.increaseProgress(); // this is the progress bar ignore this

          Hi Duncan,

          did u encounter any problem with the socket exception? coz when i connect server-client, i received the following error:
