Hi,

Note that you shouldn't connect to the network with a custom-written C program while you are a beginner in C. There may be a lot of vulnerabilities and your computer system may be attacked as a result.

Writing a compiler for a programming language may be of comparable complexity to writing an OS.

For the OP's localhost by the way. It's for playing with. Can you attack localhost (127.0.0.1)? Unless he is on public WiFi, he shouldn't worry doing it locally. It's not like he's going to make a mini Skype. A programming language (that isn't really much of one) can just have a few if statements (a little interpreter). The OP might have thought a game would be simple. However, in C, things are harder.

For the OP -+
I suggest you make a simple calculator, maybe a browser? (little bit hard) or even a web server.
