Does anyone know where I can find some tutorials on using the WinSock API from MASM? I just need to wait for a connection and exchange data.

Dude, WinSock is based on something called BSD Sockets, used by UNIX .... I recommend u find BEEJ'S GUIDE and read it back to front about 6 times http://evilasm.iwarp.com has it, this is a unix guide for C-Coders, but the info in this guide is 100% pertinent to WinSock, and U will understand EVERYTHING (pretty much) when u actually study a sourcecode that is using this stuff under MASM.

Sorry I forgot to mention that having read Beej's Guide, I rely on a combination of the WinSock1.1 HelpFile and the m$ api HelpFile, with very rare reference to the WinSock 2.2 docs and finally the msdn site at m$ (I HATE searching that DB)

The API HelpFiles are available everywhere, here too from memory, and I recommend you read up on every new api function you encounter in a sourcecode within the helpfiles.

If you STILL have trouble understanding, then maybe ask a direct and specific question on this MessageBoard, theres a bunch of regulars who frequent this site and its mirrors :)

I've seen several requests for winsock tuts recently and haven't seen anyone mention icz's winsock tut but it's on his page. Wait a sec and I'll get a direct link.

It's here:
http://win32asm.rxsp.com/asmsockguide.html

It's of the same high quality that we've come to expect from him too! ;)


I would have posted this sooner, but I don't visit the network section of this board very often.
