A programming language such as c/c++
An understanding of the windows API and the structure of a windows program (Programming windows by Charles Petzold covers this)
socket programming in this case winsock

I'll second the above list. If you're looking for a free way to learn the Win32 SDK, I recommend the Forger's Tutorial, available free online. For socket programming, I recommend Beej's Guide, also a freely available tutorial. I'm assuming by your memberhsip here that you already have a working knowledge of C/C++

1. C# (http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualCsharp/default.aspx)
2. For the peer to peer part, look in System.Net.
