I need to create a small ethernet hub with a PC connected to a number of custom external devices. I don't know much about ethernet as in the past I have utilised something like a CSocket or a PIPE directly using TCP/IP.
In this case the protocol will be directly on the ethernet and I am wondering if there is a developer kit that allows talking directly to the ethernet card under Windows?
Anybody have any experience of this?
Env: VC++ 6.0, Win NT/2K/9x
