What's the most efficient way to implement a C++ multithread server using sockets?

I have a server that has an infinite loop. This loop has an accept socket function, and when a client connects with the server socket, the server creates a thread and relays the communication to this thread. Then, the server returns to the  loop.

Are there any more efficient ways to implement this functionality?

I assume you are refering to a console application in blocking mode.  If so, you got it;

while (1)
{
   SOCKET sa = accept(m_s,
                      (sockaddr *) &sai,
                      &nSize);
   // send sa to thread for processing
}

You can use non-blocking sockets if using WinSock, which takes more than the 1000 character this is limited to.

Good books on WinSock, number 1 covers blocking, 2 both but mainly nonblocking after a couple chapters.
1. Internetworking With TCP/IP Volume III - WinSock Version.

2. Windows Sockets Network Programming.
