I am  wanting to create a vb client and vb server programs, which will NOT reside on the same network. I want to be able to transmit data backa nd forth between the two programs, using SOAP and XML. Is there any way that I can do this, without using a web server on the server side?

Basically I am trying to communicating over the web, by passing data between point A (client) and point B (server), using a VB coded application.

Have you tried using the winsock control?  There are plenty of good examples at www.planet-source-code.com

Just do a search for "Winsock Client/Server" under Visual Basic.  There are a bunch of basic chat apps there showing you how to setup the communications and the send and recieve.

ketapillar,

I could use the winsock controls to communicate via sockets not just in a network, but over the web as well? I was under the assumption that sockets were pretty much a network based protocol only.

ketapillar ,

So lets say that there are two computers (one running an admin program of sorts, and one running a client program). In real life, IP addresses are like social security numbers. So if the computer the admin program is on an network, and the other computer is running he client, on its on, not a part of any network, I could communicate back and forth using sockets?

Not that I doubt what you have said, but the communication between these two programs, is essential to the design and all that jazz :). Thanks
