mac 7.5.3 --> solaris 2.5

How do you go about writing a client process for the power mac (7.5.3 OS) to talk to a server on a unix machine?

I've tried all the programming books, websites, etc.  All I need is a piece of code which will

1. connect (TCP/IP or UDP or anything) to the server
2. send a simple message to the server
3. disconnect

I'm familiar with socket programming on the unix side.  I am using CodeWarrior for the Power Mac.  What exactly do I need to go about this?

Thanks

If you are familiar with Sockets, then you can use CWGUSI which is a C++ sockets implementation for the MacOS. It should be on the CD-ROM that you got with CodeWarrior. Its relatively painless to use (compared to using OpenTransport or MacTCP interfaces), especially if you're already familiar with sockets.

If you cant find it on you CD-ROM, then web on over to:
