I have a server running a vb program, whick is constantly updating a msaccess database., and sending info back to the clients.
The Clients will be connected to the internet.
There are a large number of Clients (1000), who all day will be sending data to the server ,and receiving info via the server.
Each data parcel is only small (say between 100 and 500 characters)
I have intended to set up an ftp server, on the server machine., and use Wininit on both the server and client machines to send/receive the data.
I have never used Winsock.
??? Is Wininit the best way, or should i investigate Winsock,,./ or something else.
