You can use the Microsoft Winsock Control, which I think comes with VB5.

First, you use the "Winsock.Listen <port>" method on the Server (the one that will send the string).

Then use the "Winsock.Connect" method to connect to the server with a client.

To send some data, use the SendData method with winsock.

If you need code, I can send you some. Just give me your email address.

Well, I haven't got time to do that.

If you want, you can go this site for VERY much sample code.

Your problem is the one problem that has been made most samples of in the world (I think). If you need more information, just post a comment here, or mail me.

He has links to ALL the greatest VB sites in history, and also a great VB search-engine.

And.... if you find something, I would appreciate the 50 points. :)Thanks
