In this brief introduction to the Winsock control, we started out building a simple one-way messaging application.

Within a few minutes, we'd moved this to being a bi-directional instant messaging tool, then looked at chat sessions, file transfers and even considered how we can use the Winsock control to send 'commands' to our client machines. On the way, we picked up a bundle of tips, which taught us how to 'think big' and use this newfound knowledge to create our own lil' ICQ.

I hope this introduction has given you a taste of the possibility behind Winsock.

And so until the next time, this is Karl Moore, signing off wishing you all a pleasant evening, wherever you are in the world.

Night night!
