Hi hanky, you could use the winsock.dll to accomplish your task, but I recommend a simpler way of proceeding:

download socket tools wrench from www.catalyst.com
there are quite a few versions (visual, dll, ocx16, ocx32) but most of them are comercial.  Although the one you need is FreeWare!!!!.....and has some examples in VB too!

If you need more help, please email me to

bye
