I am a little bit confused and I hope someone will kindly help me.
Please execuse me for the following simple questions cause I am trying to write my first winsock program.
I have 2 PCs (WIN95) connected to the Internet using ISP and modem. Here are the questions:
1. Is the IP address of each of them a local one and I cannot use it to send something directely to them from another machine on the Internet using WinSock?
2. Do they get a new IP address each time they connect to the Internet (Dial-up)?
3. Is there anyway that I can code a program that send a file or text from one of them to the other without using a server or broker?
4. What are the answers to the above 3 questions in case that these 2 clients are using NIC and behind a firewall or broxy?
Is there any example for client to client direct communications ?
