With only the information you have supplied, it is impossible to say 
what might be causing your problem.  My best guess is that you have made 
an error in coding your client module.  First, use snoop, tcpdump or 
some similar tool to verify that your client is actually sending a 
request packet to the server.  Next, verify that this packet is 
correctly formatted and that the contents are valid.

If these steps do not lead to a solution perhaps you can post again and 
furnish more details.
