Do you refer to program TCP/IP or UDP from a PC? It is usually called sockets programming.
Maybe a good alternative is Visual C++. There are many articles here:

I recommend TCP/IP, as opposed to UDP.. Socket Programming is extremely easy in Java, see examples of Socket programming in Java, here: http://www.javaalmanac.com/cgi-bin/search/find.pl?words=socket

Otherwise, let us know your preferred language.

Ethernet is a networking topology.. socket programming is basically, programming communication between network nodes (with the use of Socket connections).

The fact that it's an Ethernet network, doesn't affect how you do the Socket Programming. This may help:

   Socket program
            |
    TCP/IP (or UDP)
            |
           OS
            |
       Hardware --> Network

For a definition of "Ethernet", see here: http://www.webopedia.com/term/e/ethernet.html
And also, you should understand the difference between a "Socket" and "Ethernet" by looking at the (1) definition for "Socket": http://www.webopedia.com/term/s/socket.html
