hey people, i'm just learning about networking so i though may be i could write a little port monitor, when i use the listen api, does is permanently listen to that certain port or just tries to get a connection on that certain port ? Regards Olli

Typhoon, Yeah, the listen API does just as it says.......it listens on whatever specified port. It is important to not that the port does NOT try to connect however; for that you use the connect API. If you want to be notified of incomming connections, specify FD_ACCEPT in WSAAsyncSelect.....then you can use the accept API :-) Good luck, *unknown* P.S. You being 17 and owning a website design company is pretty cool.....just wanted to let you know it gave me some hope :-)

Thanks unknown, i got it, works fine now... Why does it give you hope ?

........I dunno ;-) BTW....after you use the accept API (and it's successful) move EAX into a variable (like Client). Then when you send and recv, use Client as the socket descriptor.....NOT the original socket. That fucked me.....took me lika week *L* Later, *unknown*
