Basic Win9X Networking Info...
OK, I am now working on some multiplayer (coop only for now) aspects of my RPG. Could somebody give me the basics of opening a (port?/ip?) to send and recieve data with? Also, would I be able to use ReadFile/WriteFile with this object? I would even appreciate just a pointer to some networking basics under IPX and/or TCP for Win9X in C/C++. I first intend on making a simple chat program to get the basics of it, then I intend on adding file transfer ability, and once that is working, I'll start work on multiplayer and a possible shareware release. Thanks for the help everybody!
