Well I have this page http://doc.51windows.net/Directx9_SDK/?url=/directx9_sdk/play/tut/tutorial9_clientserver.htm It says 'The sample code can be found at (SDK root)\Samples\C++\DirectPlay\Tutorials\Tut09_ClientServer' but, when I look in my SDK it's not there for me. So I was wondering if anyone who has it could upload it for me.

DirectPlay is depricated, they don't update it anymore, so if you don't have it maybe you should try downloading an older version of the SDK

Thats what I'm trying atm, I'm downloading an SDK from 2003. Because I found the info file from DirectPlay for 2003 SDK.

DirectPlay has been dead and buried for several years. Trying to develop something new for DirectPlay is about as wise as developing something new for Windows 98.

Yep, I would be going with eNet, Raknet, or something else.

Or if you are feeling more hardcore and do it all yourself, go with Winsock or BSD Sockets.
