Appologies, I should have been clearer.
Although, it does state on the first line of the tutorial;
This tutorial is to designed to get a feel for the most basic Winsock model, the blocking socket. By the end you will have a working client. The server can be found in Tutorial 2.
But, yes, a client will always need a server to connect to. I am glad you have realised that tutorial 2 is the compliment of tutorial 1 (As is the trend through out the rest of the site).
