    Hi,

    Can anyone give me a hint of writing a

    SOCKET program for client and server which should run both in windows as well as Linux

    with no change in the code i welcome as many possible solutions to this as possible.

    Try using #ifdef to check for the OS type and include the appropriate header file.Also, do the same thing where the function name differs. I hope the idea is clear to you.
