Serveez is a server framework. It provides routines and help for implementing IP based servers (currently TCP, UDP and ICMP). It is also possible to use named pipes for all connection oriented protocols. The application demonstrates various aspects of advanced network programming in a portable manner. You can use it for implementing your own servers or for understanding how certain network services and operations work. The package includes a number of servers that work already: a HTTP server, an IRC server, a Gnutella spider and some others. One of the highlights is that you can run all protocols on the same port. The application itself is single threaded but it uses helper processes for concurrent name resolution and ident lookups.
