I should say that I have broken the port 80 barrier lately as I wrote a basic socket server using PHP. Its the first time ever I have written something else like this coz till now I have been more keen on developing Web Applications and was stuck on port 80 and Apache Web Server. I have been teased few times by my collegues that I don't have a world beyond port 80. Atlast I broke that barrier :D[BigGrin].

Socket programming in PHP can be done using the socket communication functions that provides the fascility to act as a socket server and as well as a client. I will try to post some sample codes when I complete them.
