Under winNT, 2000 you really need to investigate 'completion ports' if
you intend to get efficient socket io. The multithreaded stuff which
is part of the winsock library doesn't really sit too well on NT in
terms of efficiency and NT style overlapped io is the way
forward. There should be at least a couple of articles on it in MSDN,
but its not a widely known technique.


I decided to dig the article up for you :
