I have a simple tcp client in vb6 using the winsock control and a tcp
server in java using sockets. I wish to send text information between
them. Both apps sit on the same machine.

The vb client and java server connect fine, and I can send text from
the java server and the vb client picks it up straight away...and can
continue this as long as the connection is open

My PROBLEM is when I try sending text from the VB client, the java
server does not receive it... until I close the connection from the VB
side - which I don't want to do. I am using the SendData method. I can
get 2 vb apps to work fine and 2 java apps to work fine but not vb and

Can anyone help me out here?
