Me and my friend have been trying to create a Instant messenger system with Visual Basic 6.  So far we just have some what of a client -- server system.  Right now we are having trouble detecting connections with winsock, we have multiple forms so we declare global variables and stuff, but we don't know whats wrong, no one can connect, and no one can send any messages.  It all worked until we set up the multiple forms, and the "Listen" command on from load.  Any help would be deeply appreciated.  Here is the link to the source and program file -- http://geocities.com/satwak1414/SUIM.zip

rather than unloading the form with the winsock control on it, just hide it.
