Don't you think only five hours is a bit impatient on an international forum? See, right now, everyone in the West is up and working, and likely to look. In a few hours, that will shift as more people leave work and get to work. Then maybe someone who has done socket programming in both Windows and Linux will respond.

My advice to you is:

1) Relax. Get yourself a nice, frosty, amber beverage and sip it. Enjoy it. Taste it.

2) Keep researching it yourself. Figure out the libraries necessary, compare them.

3) Have a look at our Posting Guidelines. Just FYI - it's considered rude to respond like that in such a short time period.

With that said, I'm sure someone here can help, it's just a matter of when - as all the moderators and experts here volunteer their time. If you get to the end of that list and still have no response, go back to #1 ;)

I ported a bit of socket software to Windows once and I remember I had to use
some WsaSomething() method before sockets could be used. But all my posix
compliant software worked after that. I didn't take more than a few ugly
#ifdef WINDOWS lines ...

kind regards,
