    You're obviously not looking very hard. Get a book, search the web, and at least try to do a little research before running for help. Here is a good start:

    www.google.com
    www.planet-source-code.com
    www.cpp-home.com/

    ok, most of the tutorials I read on sockets are very hard for me to understand, I am still reading through them trying to learn. I want to make a 'very' basic web server or a server I can telnet to & write to a text file on the server. So I just want a few begginer tutorials on c sockets, please post a few, many thanx.

    The best guide I've seen has already been posted:
    http://www.ecst.csuchico.edu/~beej/guide/net/html/

    It even includes sample source for a client and server.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    So read them again until you do. If sockets were simple enough for everyone to understand after merely reading an on-line tutorial then they would be pretty much useless.

    >So I just want a few begginer tutorials on c sockets
    You've been given that. Though it seems to me you may need a beginner tutorial on C so that you can work your way up to sockets if your problem is not understanding the material.
