When trying to run my program I keep getting this error below.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Users\R\Desktop\CeaserCrypt\Program_B.py”, line 49, in
File “C:\Users\R\Desktop\CeaserCrypt\Program_B.py”, line 13, in get_the_file
s.connect((host, port)) # Bind to the port
ConnectionRefusedError: [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
What does this mean and why am I getting it?
This is the code:
import socket s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM) host = socket.gethostname() # Get local machine name port = 12345 # Reserve a port for your service. s.connect((host, port)) # Bind to the port f = open("T.dat", "w") data = None while True: m = s.recv(1024) data = m if m: while m: m = s.recv(1024) data += m else: break f.write(data) f.close() print("Received the file..") return
And yes, my firewall/antivirus is off
