Before you become an expert programming networking code in Linux, it is worth bringing yourself up to speed with Linux network admiinistration. The "NAG" is online at but if you prefer wood pulp - see

After that, I'd agree with Sunny that Stevens is your next stop. See

When you are a beginner in C programming, you should learn the fundamental things in C first. Before doing a network (which is very difficult) you should know C blind!!!
The easiest way to find literature is, for example, Just seek "network programming in C" there (or what u want) but I recommend you to start steady in C.
