Hola,
I am trying to figure out which IP address is connecting to my socket (INADDR_ANY
is currently used).
From a database I will then decide if this ip address and the corresponding user name
is allowed to connect. Is this possible in 9x/NT ??? I thought getpeername is useful but
it's not working in 95 and NT.
Thanks a lot !
Markus
