    Winsock Tutorial

    Does anybody know a good Winsock tutorial? I'm looking for something that tells you a lot about what is actually happening, and not just source code to type in.

    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    Petzold's Windows book has a Winsock tutorial in it. Not sure how good it is though because I have not gotten there yet.

    I usually recommend this one first...

    ... then graduate to this...

    I really like the Beej's guide, I found it really good. Oh well.

    >>Petzold's Windows book has a Winsock tutorial in it. Not sure how good it is though because I have not gotten there yet.<<

    IMO he really only skims it. I didn't find it very good for sockets. Not compared to online sources anyhow.
