how to use CAsyncSocket
Server side:
you need to derive two classes from CAsyncSocket , 1 for listening, the other for the actual communication.

class CServSck : public CAsyncSocket{} // for listening
class CCommunicateSck : public CAsyncSocket{} // for communicating

// you need to create your listen socket in you main
// program
CServSck listenSck;
listenSck.Create(8888); // listening port

// in your listen socket
void CServSck::Accept(int nErrorCode)
{ // the listen socket will create a new communicate
  // socket and accept the client using the communicate
  // socket

  CCommunicateSck *pComSck = new CCommunicateSck;

// modify the various functions such as OnConnect, OnClose, Send, etc in the communicate socket class

Client Side:
you need to derive one class from CAsyncSocket

class CClientSck : public CAsyncSocket{}
// in your main program create a client socket and connect to the server

CClientSck clientSck;
clientSck.Connect("", 8888);// specify the IP and port

// client socket will receive OnConnect when the socket is connected so you want to modify CClientSck::OnConnect to add your action when the socket is connected
// modify various functions in CClientSck as needed
