I want to use VB to connect to a network address at work. I now use WRQ Reflections to login and send & receive. I connect to a unix based device. The reason I want to use VB is that if I write my application using Reflections VB I can't distribute it to others I work with. (They would need Reflections on their computer)
I tried the inet1 control and openURL but is doesn't login.
I used "ftp://username:password@##.##.###.##
I guess I just need to be pointed in the correct direction. Pointed to good, simple examples.
After connecting to the device I will be sending unix commands (ls, get, put, cd /opt/bsm, etc) and other commands specific to this device. I'll need to act on responses to these commands. But I am getting ahead of my main problem - just getting connected reliably.
If it will help. When using Reflections I use "Best Network", and enter an address. I Connect and receive a prompt to enter my UN & Password. After that it's like working in DOS. CD /, ls -lrt, action initialize.
I'll be using an interface that hides the actual communicating behind the scenes.
Thanks for the help.
