i don't know about refb, but as long as your kernel was compiled with ipv6 report, u can use it. just call socket(AF_INET6,..

what exactly do you want me to do? i said i've never heard of it, so any advice i could give would require me to first read the entire protocol. and unless your paying, it's not happening.

Talking

ok!! got it..

the thing is that the RFB protocol is the basis of another that its called the VNC protocol..

what they do:

imagine there's a server and a client. so what apears on the screen of both terminals is the group of actions that the server takes.

however, if the client want's to act it has to have the server permission.

try: http://www.realvnc.com

this is used on the videoconferencing applications.


know i'm trying to implement a similar application but from the start. From the basis, from the sockets


and using the ipv6 protocol ipv6

hope you're cleared..


now i ask can u help me?

well, after reconsidering i changed my mind about the chat subject..

is there a way to create a socket that is used only to listen what happens on the network?


thanx
