file transfer

I want to read files with different extensions like .pdf and .xls and store the data into a buffer then send it through the network and at the recieving end I want to save the file with the same extensions. Can anybody let me know how I can implement it using VB.

Briefly I want to transfer the files of different types.

You can use the Winsock control to transfer files. First, send a header that specifies the file name and size. Then read the file, and send it in peices. the receiving side will save it using the name you specified
Hey Mike you would have a piece of example code to support that would you?   I have tried that, which I know it can be done, but have had many problems.  The file would get corrupted to the point of unusable.
I don't have any code for that, but post your code here, and i'll try to see what's wrong with it.

Same is the problem with me too.   I want to know how can I get  
the entire file to be transferred. I have no problem while transferring the data.

Can you help me out with some code.
