I want to connect to a server using NSSocketPort.

What is the Class I had to use to read and write on the socket ?

You almost certainly don't want to use NSSocketPort ... that's a class for Distributed Objects connections, and I assume that if you meant you wanted to connect to a distributed objects server you would already know that you use NSConnection for DO.

Probably you want to connect to a non-GNUstep server process which communicates via TCP/IP. For that you should be using the NSFileHandle class. GNUstep has +fileHandleAsClientAtAddress:service:protocol: to establish such a connection.

To connect to a network news server you might do -

myHandle = [NSFileHandle fileHandleAsClientAtAddress: @"myhost@mydomain"
    service: @"nntp" protocol: "tcp"];

See Reference/NSFileHandle.html
