Exploring the Windows Subsystem for Linux, we have looked at the architectural overview, the Pico Processes, syscalls and filesystem. In this video we focus on the networking layer. Sunil Muthuswamy discusses some of the differences between Windows and Linux networking and where the translation happens. Sunil will also walk us through the translation of typical TCP and UDP calls as well as touch on how Unix sockets are used by Linux for inter process communication.
