I need some reference matirial on managing the raw sockets in Windows (some baisc info, like creating, getting data, sending data, ...). Any links to the docs would be great!
(no Micro$oft, please.)

Check out the functions available through Winsock.dll. This is a Microsoft dll, but it is their version of the Berkeley sockets standard (and as you are operating on Windoze, you will never get fully away from MS).
I understand that it is reasonably close to the Unix version, although i have never done sockets on Unix,so i can't say exactly how close it is, but it would be an easy port.

Also, (and there is a small possibility i am wrong here), you cannot do raw sockets on NT4 unless you write your own kernel mode driver.

These guys have ported libnet over to Nt, i think you will
find this to your suiting, raw sockets and all.

No, you are wrong. Check the www.komodia.com site and check their TCP library. It works although it uses raw sockets. Some items work in the NT also.
