I am trying to make a network game, and i need to use UDP for my protocol, since its more suited for FPS types, so ive heard. I have made a MUD once, with TCPIP, so..... Where would I find the best resources for learning UDP and how to get it all set up and running. Im using Windows, VC++. Any info will be appreciated, thanks:)

I might recommend using a higher level networking library that takes care of all the problems associated with UDP. ENet and RakNet are two I can think of off the top of my head.

EDIT: Check this out.

Look online for WINSOCK documentation and sample code (google keywords like
"CLIENT" "SERVER" "UDP" "WINSOCK" "CODE" "SAMPLE" "C++" )

There may be code samples included with VC (or on the Platform SDK)-- look in the compilers help.
