Anyone know of a really good networking package that does both UDP and TCP at the same time and can multi-cast.  It should also be able to parse packets and create an event so that it makes it easier to work with.

I've posted a similiar question in the Delphi section worth 325 points, but since this has to do with MSVC as much as it does delphi, I posted it here as well.

I'm ceratinly not sure what you're asking.  C++ has no networking facilities but Windows does and since I assume you are running on Windows what more do you need?  The WINSOCK library should do everything you need and it's included with Windows.

I am looking for a library that goes on top of winsock that simplifies it.  I'm more of a visual programmer and messing with APIs is not the easiest for me which is why I use Delphi.  The MSVC client is someone elses project, but I wanted to coordinate it.

I'm basically looking for something like what hawksoft's hawkNL library does at www.hawksoft.com but has working examples for both MSVC and Delphi.

OK, I understand.  Have you looked at the CSocket class in MFC?  That's what I use for most things.

I am still waiting for an answer.  Just noone is responding.  (And I did forget about it because of this)
