    use winsock, OCX or you can make API Calls to the DLL...
    you can find tons of winsock resources/projects on www.planetsourcecode.com...

    the basic syntax will be "winsock.senddate" and "winsock.getdata" although that won't help you much unless you read a winsock tutorial or go over some open source projects ...

    good luck, winsock is fun
    IMO socks programming is a lot easier in other languages (like C and Perl)...

    Heres a tutorial on Winsock programming with VB, it should help you some. I found it at WinsockVB.com which has lots more tutorials on winsock programming in case you need them. You might also want to stop by ProgrammersHeaven and check to see if they have any useful articles or tutorials.
