Client / Server programming - generic steps to start a server or a client

Client/server network programming requires a server running on one machine to listen and answer requests and one or more clients running either on the same machine or different machines connected to the server through a network.
Independent from your operating system and programming language, you'll have to follow the following basic steps to create and run a server (the function refers to the unix naming convention; almost all languages have interfaces to them):
Create a socket with socket
Bind the socket to a port address with bind
Listen to the socket at the port address with listen
Accept client connections with accept
Creating a client involves less steps:
Create a socket with socket
Connect the socket to the remote machine with connect
Most modern environments offer classes, components, beans, Active-X controls.. libraries.. to abstract this process but it's good to know the basic steps that happen behind the scenes in case you get an error message 'Cannot bind socket'.. 'port already in use'.
What point are, You trying to make by posting that copy of
what, I wrote on this thread all over this site ?
Then only speak what, I believe to be French ?
What are, You playing at ?
If, You have something to say to me then say it.
Don't play like a child and post things all over this site.
I guarantee, You will not be able to keep doing that for very long
if, You choose to keep doing it.

reason they were put here in the first place.
