I am working on a program where I need to be able to send a file over the network to another computer.
I would like to have a sort of system setup where each computer that is running my program will show up in an "address book" of sorts, so you can get the computer name from the list, and use that as the destination to send files to.
This is quite a big task for me but I figure it'll be a great learning process. I am a bit overwhelmed as to where to start mind you as I've never really done any cross-network programming.
Can anyone offer any sort of reading / areas to focus on for creating a program that is able to access other machines on the network.
