socket programming in UNIX

Socket programming or client-server programming, involves writing the computer program that communicates with other programs across acomputer network. The program or process initiating the communication is called a client process, and the program waiting for the communication to be initiated is the server process. The client and server processes together form a distributed system. The communication between the client and server process may either be connection-oriented (such as an established TCP virtual circuit or session), or connectionless (based on UDP datagrams).

To understand the UNIX network programming you need to be an expert in socket programming. To understand the complete concept of Socket Programming with example and sample codes follow the below link
