You can, but you only have UDP. If you want TCP, you'll need to do a C++ COM object, as God said. I don't think VB COM allows you to receive incoming connections either.<BR><BR>But if it's just UDP, go ahead.
Just do a google search of TCP C++, and throw that into an ATL object.<BR><BR>You should have a rudimentary understanding of C++, however... I do believe most socket connections are made in C, but your interface will be C++.
