    Question Networking suggestion


    I am looking to network my computer to a micro-controller with some type of ether net controller (I haven't decided yet). I am using C++. The app just needs to send info and receive info upon request (comp server / Micro client). The micro and computer will be on a local network only maybe connected thought the wifi. I have already made my app, and I am at the point where I am looking into APIs for networking. I am asking someone with a lot of expertise to give some ideas about which APIs I may need to study or what I may need to look into in this road ahead of me.

    Thanks in advance

    Google for socket programming. You might also need to get some additional packages for your micro-controller to enable the ethernet controller.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.
