I need to know if there is another way to wait for a conection when I try to establish a Remote Conection. Right Now I'm Using this Tiny Do While

for Example

winsock1.conect Server(x.x.x.x) Port(NNNN)

Do while .state <> sckconnected
   DoEvents
Loop

I don't like this manner because my CPU reach 100% percent of utilization when the Code Reach the Do while.

Any help will be apreciated

When using the Winsock control there is a special event that occurs called : "Connect" that gets triggered when a connection has been established. So either select this event from the drop down box of the methods box (for the winsock control) or make a new procedure named: Private sub Winsock1_Connect()

Of course, by using this procedure it does not give you the ability to display the other states that the socket may be in just before connecting ie. "Resolving Host", "Wait For Response", etc.. To do this you would have to make a small while loop and continuously check the winsock1.state function.
