    My last thread for the day.

    I've been using NSInputStream and NSOutputStream to connect to a remote server and pass data back and forth which is fine. I'm aware there are a couple of other ways of doing it, but have no idea what the advantages are of the other methods.

    But how can I make the iPhone listen on a port? For something like an iRC client I'd need to be listening on a certain port and accepting the connection in order to pass the Ident check etc.

    Tried googling but to no avail.

    Thanks in advance.
