     Alright. So you decided that coding a stand alone application is cool enuff, but then again, the possibilities are limited. Now you want to cut the chase and start writing some real deal code where you make your computer bug other computers on a network (Internet for example). Well, thats what you need sockets for. Sockets are channels of communication between two or more computers. With socket code, you will be able to write clients (such as email clients, web browsers, news readers, etc) as well as servers (http, ftp, smtp, pop, irc, nntp, and so on). How cool is that? way! Well, what are you waiting for? Lets start digging our sockets. Note: To try out the servers whose source code is included, connect to the ip address and port the server is running via a regular telnet client.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
