    Lightbulb Well..

    The right library files are in C++. There's Linker Options in your project options, and I know one of them is -wsock32 in the include, but I don't know the rest because I am trying to learn sockets, and I can never get the right lib files.


    C++ Environment: MSVC++ 6.0; Dev-C++ 4.0/4.1
    DirectX Version: 9.0b
    DX SDK: DirectX 8.1 SDK

    If you are using Windows, I can't really help you, but Winsock2.h does contain most of the networking functions you will need in Windows.

    If you are programming under Unix/Linux, I would recommend getting the following book: "Unix Network Programming" by Richard Stevens Volume 1.
