I imported the file MSWINSCK.OCX in Delphi but how do I have to use it ?
I created a Server application in VB, but now i must create exactly the same one in Delphi. The Events and properties are all the same.

After imporing and registering there should be a component TWinSock on the samples page.

Don't just import; choose Component; Import ActiveX Control.

Use should be same as in VB.

I've already done this, but the use is not exactly the same as in VB.
eg:
Winsock1.GetData(StrData, type, length).
These three variables are declared as OLEVariant. How do I have to use them ?
