Help with SDL_Net

Two questions, if I may

One: Where do I search through the archives - The webpage doesn’t seem to
have a search engine anymore.

Two: I’m having some trouble with SDL_Net.

I can get a basic client/server setup talking, where the client can send
messages to the server using TCP. However, after I get the initial
connection, I would like to use UDP packets to send the normal game data, as
all the reading I’ve done indicates that UDP performs better than TCP for
that sort of thing.

But I’m having trouble understanding the example Chat program, how do I
setup a UDP connection between client and server ? How does the server tell
the difference between UDP and TCP packets. How do I go about binding UDP
ports on both the client and server ? Questions, questions, questions…

Any help muchly appreciated.
