    There are cross platform libraries. There are implementations of regular BSD sockets on most platforms. Also, Asio is a cross-platform socket library trying to get into boost (if it's not in there already).

    Asio has made it into Boost. Now it's trying to get into standard C++, and it's on its way there. (It's under consideration for TR2; not sure if it really will be there.)

    But there is no Boost release yet that contains Asio. In the meantime, you can get it at http://asio.sf.net/
    All the buzzt!
