Help you with WHAT?? All you've told us is what you WANT, but not shown anything that you've DONE.

There are many source-code examples for the finger program that you can easily find on the net...try Google. If you have a SPECIFIC question, post it, along with relevant details, and we might be able to help.

Where do we need to start my friend?

How much C do you know?

What level of knowledge about socket programming in C in a Linux
environment have you gathered?




Cheers,
Tink
