Right, first of all, this is NOT a homework. This is a program I am creating to help me run a LAN Party. I need to be able to create a program that either (a) searches for an IP address and a specific file on a hosted computer to open.
or (b) Takes a given IP address and looks for the file.
It will only be running on windows OS's from 95 to XP. The servers will be running on XP and they will be running this program.
Also, does anyone know of any way to cycle the IP address of a server and automatically change the user connections so they do not notice the change?
I do not want a full program written. just advice on where to look.
Thanks in advance.
