I am working on a project that is to be submitted as my minor project in my college.
I am using V c++ for windows programming .I encountered a problem i.e. I was unable to track the users logging to the win NT primary domain controller from the local LAN.This problem is a small part of my Project.
I am an computer science student.
I am interested in doing a mini project in linux.
i got the basic connections
now i can establish contact between client and server.
but i don' know how to differenciate between various clients.
that is say simple chatting.. I want send message from one client to another client thru the server program.
hope somebody will answer my question.

I think that the easiest way to support multi-clients in this -trully- remarkable work, is using multicast. By using multicast you send a single copy of the data and every client that subscribes to the muticast group gets the data.
I have tried it with applications that needs really heavy network traffic on multiple-connection scenarios and it worked ok. (the application was a realtime stockmarket app).
In general, I think that applications of that type can make use of multicasting to transfer the load from the server to the routers.
