Keep connection alive

I am writing a client and server, similiar to the samples provided with VC++ 5. I don't want my server to have any dialogs, windows, etc. I just want it to listen for a connection, make the connection to the client, and receive messages. So far i have been able to write the code to listen and accept a connection. But once the connection is made the server program ends. how do i keep the server running?

Do you instance a thread for each incoming connection?

I think you should post the code snippet where the server accepts the connection  .....

I have figured out part of my problem. I wrote my server using a dialog-based application wizard. The program listens for a connection when the dialog box appears. SO is there anyway to make the dialog box invisible?

Just reviewing old questions... You asked how to make a dialog
invisible...

You can do this with ShowWindow(FALSE) but then you can never
get it back unless somewhere in your code you have ShowWindow(TRUE)...

You can also just iconify yourself with ShowWindow(SW_MINIMIZE)
