    Talking Winsock vs Unix Sockets

    It seems like I'm the only programmer here who programs sockets in a Unix environment. I humbly advise anyone using Winsocks to migrate to Unix or Linux sockets.. Is there anyone out there who has some UNIX or Linux socket experience??

    Later on I would like to learn about networking in linux, for now I just need to concentrate on the basics of programming though.

    Yeah, I'm recently trying to work on LInux network programming.
    I wanted to send/receive data using TCP/IP. I found it works. But after that I need to secure the data. I decided to encrypt my data.
