Hi,

I've got a threaded server that accepts about 500 connections.  From what I've read the best winsock method is to use Overlapped I/O.  can anyone point me to an example that I could look at or give me some pointers on Overlapped I/O in winsock.  I'm not using the winsock2 lib and no MFC.  This is the basic method I'm using right now but I'm getting data loss.

1. Accept connection & create a thread
2. Recv in the thread until the term signal is sent
3. Based on recv buffer send data back
4. Clean up and close thread when term signal is sent

Check out http://win32.mvps.org/network/sockhim.html and the sample code at http://win32.mvps.org/network/sockhim.zip

If I may say so myself, the small demonstration project below is superior in both readability and practical applicability. It demonstrates a small server that:
-      uses sockets in overlapped mode, attached to an I/O completion port (IOCP);
-      uses AcceptEx() to route new connections through the IOCP;
-      uses GetQueuedCompletionPacket() to retrieve the results of asynchronous (overlapped) I/O requests;
-      uses PostQueuedCompletionStatus() to send special notifications to the worker threads servicing the IOCP;
-      uses TransmitFile() like an FTP server might;
-      and demonstrates a simple state machine implementing an interactive server, which accepts commands and returns meaningful results. Simple echo servers, bah.
