    LAN Messenger in C++

    Hey everyone,
    I am a newbie to C++ and I need to submit a project proposal in my class next week. I intend making a LAN Messenger using C++. Can anyone plz advise me which books and/or tutorials, I should refer to for this (so far I've found out that I need to know socket programming). I also plan to use Windows Forms in Visual C++ for the GUI.

    Any help will truly be appreciated.
    Thnks

    There can be a lot of libraries for sockets in C++. I suggest to use the Visual C++ ones, since you are going to use it. Download Visual Studios, as well, if you have not got them already.
