Use the Winsock control to open a direct communication between the two PCs.

Or MSMQ, or DDE (not recommended), or SOAP, or broadcast...

In other words, you've got a lot of options.  What are your specific requirements, such as:
1. Amount of data to be exchanged.
2. Security of data exchanged.
3. Rate (frequency) of data exchange.
4. Performance constraints on the system.

In the future, will other programs communicate with these two?

to answer the questions:

1. Amount would be small, up to 1/2mb
2. Security is of no concern as the data is in raw format
3. Rate: LIVE
4. Performance constraints are that both are behind a firewall with closed UDP ports

In future no third party will be communicating between these two.

Kind regards

Two pc's are connected to each other with internet, and dynamic IP addresses.  Plus both are with other provider and are both behind built-in firewall of router

I'm sorry to have this question kept open, but I kinda lost connection for a few months.  Anyway, now this problem has become obsolete.

I would like to thank everybody for participating.

You know, it was really my own fault.  I messed up when I changed my email address here.

Instead of typing emailaddress@yahoo.fr I typed emailaddress@mail.yahoo.fr  no wonder I never got the verification emails... :-)
