tcp/udp and c++

I was wondering if there are any basic libraries that allow us to send information over the internet when programming in c++. For instance if I wanted to work on creating a simple file transfer agent, do you know any online resources that could help me understand how to do this?

I would prefer to use as much c++ as possible so I would like to refrain from making system calls that use another program to do the dirty work for me. If that is possible.

You need to learn how to use sockets. Use google, there's plenty of information available. Also check out:

Keep in mind that sockets are not specified by the C++ standard so any code using sockets won't be portable to all systems,
but the socket APIs that comes with Windows and Linux are very similar, even more so if you use Cygwin on Windows.
