OculusVR just open sourced RakNet - a C++ multiplatform network library used for example by Unity or Gamebryo. It's totally free even for commercial usage (BSD license and all patents granted). It's also a great reference for writing your own multiplayer transport layer.

That's really great (and unexpected) news! 


It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

That is awesome, I've been using RakNet for a while and it works a charm.

There is some sample code in my blog post if anyone needs a hand getting started.
