Yeah I want to make some kick ass internet games and maybe a pokemon simulator, hey I have the time lol.

But first I need to know... how to connect to the internet. This sites seems just right up my ally http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...ets/index.html

At first it went through BS stuff about connection to sites to see their code, which is cool and all, but not useful. Finally it got to sockets which I believe is what ones needs to connect to servers and have shit done, and play multiplayer games.

But when I get to the first input site code: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...ockServer.java
it doesn't work, I don't know if it is my compiler, but it doesn't understand -

KnockKnockProtocol kkp = new KnockKnockProtocol();

On the note of my compiler, I don't think it is operating correctly for this, I think im suppose to get a pseudo-c++ layout where I impit things, but all it does is give me red errors.

does anyone here have any experience in this kinda shit?
