    Create a TCP server using the Node.js Net Module

    javascriptJavaScript

    In this lesson, you'll learn how to include the built-in node.js 'net' module in your application and create a TCP server. You will learn about the different event listeners used, how to specify specific ports and addresses for your server, and identify where each section of your code is used in the server lifecycle.

    You would use the TCP module in scenarios where you want to deal with the raw TCP data yourself- for instance, creating your own messaging platform over TCP.
