    Starting window sockets

    I finally feel comfortable enough to move on up to sockets in Windows. I have searched and found a couple tutorials on sockets but most of which that are targeted towards windows all make use of the GUI. Since I don't know GUI programming I get confused on which parts are needed for sockets and which are needed for GUI. If anyone has any good tutorials that instruct the use of sockets under a Windows environment without the GUI feel free to post your links.

    Thank you.

    P.S. Brother and I share the same name and he knows a basic understanding of Sockets but only in *nix and I want to learn without his help. Pretty smart younger brother too

    Windows sockets are mostly based on the sockets model employed by Unix (Berkeleys), so the same command sequence is required to create and use a socket.

    MFC provides a CSocket class, and a CAsyncSocket class which can be used. Its best to look them up on MSDN, or at least post a question on the Windows Programming board.

    I think this site is pretty good for a beginner's winsock guide.

    On another note, has anybody noticed that this forum is getting more and more C++ code?
