Merry Christmas everyone.

I know is not the right place for this question, but couldn't find any better place.

Need help with definition for connection-oriented network. Cause my first language is not the English, struggle on this. I understand that connection-oriented is when, in order to transfer data from one point to other, three steps are necessary, establish connection, transfer data, terminate connection. There is any more formal way to describe it or I'm missing something from my above explanation?

Thanks in advance,

I'd say your description is pretty accurate (in terms of general idea). You can read more about connection oriented communications on wiki.

If you're looking into socket programming, check out these links: Linux howtos, MSDN reference and SDL_net (pdf reference).
