    I'd like to suggest:

    Johnnie's Winsock Tutorial

    for inclusion into the list.

    Avoid the following Fallacies in your network programs

    1. The network is reliable
    2. Latency is zero
    3. Bandwidth is infinite
    4. The network is secure
    5. Topology doesn't change
    6. There is one administrator
    7. Transport cost is zero
    8. The network is homogeneous
    For more details, read the article by Arnon Rotem-Gal-Oz

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Network analyser - http://www.ethereal.com/
    Use this to
    1. Watch what existing browser / email / ftp / chat client does already
    2. Watch what your program is doing different, if you're writing a browser / email / etc

    In a similar (or perhaps even the same vein), there's Wireshark, which is either the new name for ethereal, or a fork (I don't know which).

    there is one very important thing missing from this list, a raw sockets guide:
    http://packetstorm.widexs.nl/program...raw_socket.txt


    you gotta love raw sockets, even if win xp sp2 (*cough* lame *cough*) does not!

    DevilPanther's link for raw sockets seems to be down/out-of-date, Try:

    This, I'm sure, is a good tutorial but for windows dudes only ....
    At least I can't get it to run under GNU\LINUX distro (at least true to the open source philosophy)

    I believe that anyone who ever dreams to write a network application should know NETWORKING!
    But the link has nothing to do with Window or Linux, it's the general idea of how it works.
