Introducing ElectroServer

As you can see, a socket server is a simple yet powerful communication tool. The specific implementations of a socket server may vary, but the basic idea is the same. There are several major socket servers available for Flash and quite a few minor ones. Here we'll introduce you to the one we know best, and which, of course, is best suited for the online gaming environment: ElectroServer. ElectroServer is a high-performance socket server designed by your friends at Electrotank (www.electrotank.com) with multiplayer Flash games in mind. Throughout this book, the multiplayer games have all used ElectroServer and its various features. Over the next few pages, we will discuss those features and how you can install, use, and administer ElectroServer for your own use.

If you're planning to run the server, make sure to read “Properties File” in the “Configuring ElectroServer” section below.
