Hello Experts.

I am trying to make an application that communicates to other application in a local network and tells it whether there is a new shipment.

I want the application to show a message whenever a new shipment arrives, but I don't want to use a timer to keep testing whether there's a new shipment or not. I would like the application that received the shipment to "signal" the application that has to process it, that there's a new shipment.

I heard this can be done maybe with a winsock object. If this is true, can anybody tell me where can I find any documentation about the winsock object?

Is there any other way to do it?

Thanks in advance.
