Socket programming:One server two port

I want my server socket to listen on two ports in my machine. How do i achieve it? I will have two clients one connecting to 1 port and another to a different port. So my server needs to listen to both.
Thanks.

Use either select() or poll() to multiplex.

You basicall bind/listen on both and use select() to wait for a readable socket, select will tell you which one has activity on it, you can then read/write/accept etc after that. It's best to use non-blocking sockets.
