What is socket and server socket?






Answer / fackrudheen

A socket is one end of a two-way communications link
between two programs running on the network

A server socket is an computer communications end point for
new incoming connections. The server socket will accept
incoming connections, handle all lower-level network
traffic to finalize the incoming connection and then spawn
a new connection that can be used to read from or write to,
depending on the code. The server socket itself will still
be available to accept other incoming connections.
