UDP connections in C

UDP connections in C

UDP connections in C

So, I have written a Java applet for a client to run in their browser; it sends UDP packets back to the server and I now need to write a C application that will receive those UDP packets and respond accordingly..... I have started looking at examples, but most of them are kind of a blur to me... I'm kinda new to network programming in C, can someone explain it to me with a simple example? It would be greatly appreciated.  The server will be running Unix.  Thanks beforehand.

Start by reading "beej", then see how you get on.


If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.

RE: UDP connections in C

Just do Web search for "simple C UDP server".  You will get many hits.

RE: UDP connections in C

Why don't you use Java for the server?
