Re: Using Sockets (what are sockets)

in reply to Using Sockets

As for the implied question, "what are sockets", you might find RFC 147 and port numbers to be of some value.

Coming from a networking background (as opposed to a programming background), I'd describe a socket as the combination of both an IP address and a port number, used to uniquely identify a specific network application for remote connections.   This applies to both client and server applications.

Anymonk what can articulate it better/more_clearly, please expand on or correct my hipshoot description.
