    networking on win32


    Was just wondering for pointers regarding networking (im thinking its called that). Basically I want an application to be able to communicate with a server.. somehow..

    what do I need to learn to do that? I was wondering what technical information to lookup in the client application (im guessing it'll have something to do with win32), and the server side as well (sockets?)

    thanks in advance

    Here are two nice tutorials on sockets:

    Beej's Guide to Network Programming
    Johnnie's Winsock Tutorial

    The second is Windows specific, which is what you should know if you want to create a windows GUI with asynchronous sockets
