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.

sorry, is it like, possible to send it using miscrosoft Netbeui or something, that is to a computers name instead of an ip adres?

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