    Daemon Programming

    Does anybody know a good tutorial or book on Daemon programming? I looked at some Winsock tutorials, but they don't tell me how to open up a port, so I can't program a daemon.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Actually, with Win2k. I'd like to do it with winsock if possible. My Linux isn't compatible with my network card. =(

    You can "open a port" in Windows, (i.e. get a handle to it so you can read/write), with the CreateFile() API function, look it up in the help, with particular reference to the "communication resources" parts.

    >>> well a true daemon

    So define what you mean by "a true daemon" and lets see what we can do, but perhaps on the Windows board rather than this one.
