    Network program for dos through c

    I want to develop a chat program for lan;but all i get from the google is for unix os . I want it for windows or dos but via c (not vc or vc++) .I get some function from bios.h but in vain i m now just at dead end.
    I know all the network basics like what is socket,tcp/ip but don't know how to implement in c any standard function or library?
    i have realtek NIC and borland c ver 3.0.

    the functions are pretty much the same, but you will have to use the winsock lib, under windows.

    And don't forget to read this: www.ecst.csuchico.edu/~beej/guide/net/bgnet.pdf


    btw, you should update your borland compiler to 5.5, free
