    Internet Application Programming

    I have been looking for tutorials that teach programming applications that can communicate over the internet but I don't really know what to search for. I tried socket programming and things like that but didn't come up with anything useful. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    Either sockets or CGI is what you are looking for. C++ isn't good for CGI and sockets at such a low level are nothing short of a nightmare. What exactly do you want to do?

    Communication

    Well, just say... I would like to run a deamon or server application or send a message from one ip to another.

    You would probably be better off with another language, Java perhaps. Otherwise, search the net for source code to server applications in C++ and you'll get the basic idea of what is going on.

    If using WIN32 could try the Internet functions from Wininet.lib

    ie InternetOpenURL(), InternetReadFile()
