In VBA I need to use the Winsock API to connect to an IP address (IP number is known, so no resolving, just straight connect), send a textstring and receive a textstring (4K) in return. That's it.
I have seen lot's of Api stuff on this site, of which I don't need the most (I think). The server is available within our Intranet, so also no dial-up stuff etc.
Just connect, send and get some data and close connection.
Could someone help me out?
FYI, I do not wish to use the ocx for the ocx needs to be registered on the client machines. The code will be put in a office add-on (template) which resides on the server, so anyone with office 97 can use it.
