I've been looking for a free Network Library to use for an MMOG I'm developing. There are many out there, but I'm not sure which to use. Does anyone have any experience with them and a recommendation on which is best? Requirements: -free -simplicity -windows platform -game engine is in c++ (compatibility) Thanks for the help -Andrew Lundgren

*edit* Hmmm it doesn't look like it's free anymore...


It seems to still be free for non-commercial use to me.
