I want to make an instant messenger. I am pretty sure what I need to know, but can someone verufy this and tell me where I can learn this. How do I send things over the internet? I want to make a IM client and a server program. The client will connect with the server program, then the server will connect the client with a target client. Once again, can someone tell me how to do this or point me to a place where I can learn. I need to know how to send and recieve information through the internet.

Sorry. I am using Visual C++.

Goto a C++ help website and look for socket programming help.

It might be easier for now to create a peer to peer instant messanger so to keep the server and client bundled in one.

Oh look, a networks-with-C question.

You need to use winsock. Google for beej to find a tutorial.
