    Just wondering if there is a tutorial on how ports work.

    Does anyone know if there is a tutorial on how ports work and how to recieve/send stuff to ports. I barely know what a port is and dont really understand them.
    TIA

    There's tons of tutorials out there for ports and things. Winsock is a very common way to start using ports. Here's a couple links I found after a really quick google search:

    http://www.hal-pc.org/~johnnie2/winsock.html
    http://www.tutorgig.com/showurls.jsp?group=4071&index=0
    http://www.faqs.org/faqs/windows/win...rogrammer-faq/

    Some might be better than others, those mainly cover winsock overall.

    here's a link from msdn, a bit more in-depth
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...background.asp

    and the search i did:
    http://search.microsoft.com/search/r...&c=4&s=1&swc=4

    hope that helps and good luck!

    -edit-
    realized this was in network/device coding and you said ports, not sockets.
    I did another search on ports specifically:

    You many not like this but.

    Actually, a lot of hacking tutorials deal with ports, IP addresses, telnet, and many other resources. Aside from the fact that the article's intent is evil, it is acutally quite informational
