I've completed both a Winsock server, AND a Winsock client using C++. The problem comes in when I attempt to bind a socket to a remote IP address. I get the message "Unable to bind to "IP address" port 80.
I know for a fact that both the port, and protocol type are correct; however, what I don't know is why I am unable to "bind" to a remote IP address.
(Note: The IP address belongs to a dedicated server I have recently bought).
What troubles me is that winsock never asks me to input a username, or password to be able to "bind" a socket to a server IP address. Perhaps there is a winsock function that I am missing that requires me to input a username and a password before I am able to "bind" a socket to an IP address?
Thank you in advance.
