    Question Publish data over the internet in peer to peer style communication?

    I need to be able to publish data between multiple machines at remote locations.

    I have been able to send data between two machines on a network in the same room. However, I have no idea how to begin with resolving IPs for machines on other networks that are miles away etc.

    I would assume the application would need to LISTEN & PUBLISH in order to achieve this?

    I have also googled this, and can only seem to find C# examples, and they seem to be for data between remote computers on the same network... What I need is to be able to find some guidance on sending data between me and someone who I previously had no knowledge of. I know this must be possible due to the fact that p-2-p chat clients exist, and that p-2-p file sharing exists.

    I am not asking anyone here to write me the code, I would just really appreciate some material to work from.

    You can head over to


    it is a cross platform library for C/C++

    you have not given much details on what your target platform , or language , however if you new to socket programming then you are
    better off using higher level languages as C# or Java.
