Well I figured that I would spend my time today spoofing around with a test client/server.

Say that I boot up my server:
"Server listening on port: 4444."
"Waiting for connections..."

I'd like it to tell me when a client connects to it, than list some of the details (IP, TimeStamp of connection).
"Server listening on port: 4444."
"Waiting for connections..."
"Client connected: Gabriel-HP/ DATE_FORMAT_HERE."

My question is:
What methods can I use/classes to get my Server to tell me when a Client connects, and list some details of the connection (see above).

Now I've messed around in eclipse a little bet, (seeing all classes/methods), I know that I can grab my own info/connection info.
Hope I can get some help on this, thanks guys Smiley

You first need to accept() a connection:
Socket socket = serverSocket.accept();

This method blocks until a connection is initiated.

To get the host name, IP, and current date:
System.out.println("Client connected: " + socket.getInetAddress().getHostName() + "/" + socket.getInetAddress().getHostAddress() + " " + new Date());

you can't get the computer name via just establishing a connection
