    passing a connection to another process.

    Is it possible to pass an open connection to another process. eg:


    Process 1 receives connection. Adds connection to que. Notifies process 2. Resumes listening for connections.


    Process 2 gets connections out of the que, and works on them.

    Is this possible or is a connection limited to the process that made it ? If it is possible, what is the best way of passing the open connection, I am thinking shared memory location?

    Firstly, What OS are you using?

    If it is Windows OS, why can't you go for multithreded application. One thread will listen and other thread will process the packet.

    Once listening thread receives packets then it can set the event to signal the the thread waiting for signal.

    Let me know, if this help. Otherwise let me know your question specifics.

    awesome, thanks guys.
    I think I will go for the multithreaded method. I have to get this app working for linux and windows so after a bit of searching I am thinking POSIX threads.

    Cheers
