I know you can convert sockaddr_in to sockaddr with the typecast(LPSOCKADDR). How can I go the other way? All the other typecasts I know don''t work.

SOCKADDR *addr = (SOCKADDR *)addr_in;


Normally, you never need to do this, because you would think of SOCKADD_IN as a sub-class of SOCKADDR. Since SOCKADDR is a network address, and SOCKADDR_IN is a network address for the TCP/IP protocol.
