So I have to connect to a server on a specific port but all I have to identify the server is its name, e.g. "students.ce.sinclair.edu" in a char*. How can I get the ip address to assign to a sockaddr_in?
struct sockaddr_in server; memset($server, 0, sizeof(server)); server.sin_family = AF_INET; //server.sin_addr.s_addr = ->students.ce.sinclair.edu<- server.sin_port = ####;
gethostbyname() sounds promising but I can't find a decent example. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
