I have implemented with c++, two small apps:
an UDP client and an UDP server
I place client in same machine than server.
I start server, I start client, and I send data from client to 127.0.0.1... server receives OK
now i do ipconfig and i get my local IP is 192.168.1.8 so I repeat by sending to that ip from client.... and server receives OK
but now i get my external IP, i repeat the operation by sending to that ip, but server never receives...
I have checked by pinging to that IP and it pings with less than 1ms latency so it means is my IP address.
I have also tried to disable firewall with no luck either...
What should be the problem?
