     This code demonstrates two things: firstly, it shows you how to get a list of network adapters, and secondly, it shows you how to bind to one of them that the user selects and connect through it. This is useful for users who have a separate internet and LAN connection, or two LAN connections, or whatever else. To test it, just run the program, and listen on a port and adapter, then type your IP followed by a colon and the port you selected into your browser's address bar and the program will return the headers the browser sent to the browser. Enjoy!

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.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
