connecting linux and windows

Date: 2002/04/07 13:51

Q:
Hi?
Can i write linux server application and windows client application to
connect them using C.
And should I use winsock in windows OS. I can not find solution. Could you
help me telling me something useful idea? And I want to know how others
are doing this in someway? (maybe like yahoo messenger ??)
Thank you
Best regards

A:
Windows NT Winsock has all BSD socket functions and there is only some
really slight change in Windows socket and UNIX socket handling.

Read the

to get a great socket tutorial and

http://msdn.microsoft.com

to get the differences.

regards,
Peter
