    My First Network Console application

    Ok, I'm a newbie and I'm trying to learn C++. I use Microsoft Visual C++. So I'm trying to make a console chat program. I already have the server and the client so that the server accepts the client connection and the client can write strings that are send to the server and the server can send the same string back(tought I'd be usefull for future development) and now I'm trying to figure out how to make my server accept more than one connection. I would be thankfull if anyone can give me a link to a place where I can read about this.
    Thanks in advance.

    P.S.: Sorry if it doesn't make any sence at all.

    if you are talking about the weird headers then you are not missing anything... this guide was written for linux, so the headers are different, but the functions are the same! all you really need is the winsock.h winsock2.h and the right libs.

    read the "windows" section in the guide, at the beginning.
