TrackZero,
One easy way is to use WinSock Control. You just need the IP address of the machine. Look at the online help on WinSock control. It is quite simple.
If you need more help, let me know.

Use DCOM. Is fast, really easy, and protocol-independent.

Oh, come on, DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model) is a standard protocol for binary objects to communicate. It is part of Windows 95, 98, and NT, so if you are using Windows you already have DCOM installed in your computer.

In order to be more precise, I need to know what programming language or environment you are using to develop your programs.

Regards,
César.
