I am using the Winsock component that comes with VB 5.0 to handle communications between a server and pc applications.  Eveything is working great except that when I close the connection from the client application, the Winsock_Close event never fires.  All of the other events (including the Connect event) seem to work fine.  Has anyone noticed this problem before, and if so, do you have a fix?

When you are closing a socket the other side recive a message with 0 lenght,
that's how you can know it

Good Luck

Sure, I understand that, but what I really need is for the CLOSE event to actually be raised.  I'm trapping it using other methods right now, but the event would be a much cleaner solution.
