WinINET problem with ports > 32767

Hi.
I would list all folders on a FTP server but the port of it is bigger then 32767 so I can't connect to it. I would solve it now by connecting to the server via Winsock. Could anyone tell me how I can list all folders (in a ListBox) on a server with Winsock?
Or have someone a solution for the port problem with WinINET?

Thank you for your support!

The winsock control only accepts an integer for the port number,
so using this control will never work.

You either need to use something like C for better sockets control or ....
use IE as the transport, in VB use a webbrowser control and parse the output from the ftp site...

Here is a simplified html based solution, no error trapping added.

make a new project with 1 form,
add a control reference to microsoft internet controls,
draw a webbrowser on it

paste this code into the forms code area, change the variables and hit F5,
you'll have to parse the text from the document complete event,

'==============================================

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim port As Long
    port = 39000
    username = "username"
    password = "password"
    host = "www.myftpserver.com"
   
    fp = FreeFile
    Open "c:\x.html" For Output As fp
    Print #fp, "<script>document.location = 'ftp://" & username & ":" & password & "@" & host & ":" & port & "';</script>"
    Close fp
    WebBrowser1.Navigate "c:\x.html"
End Sub

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DownloadComplete()
    MsgBox WebBrowser1.Document.body.innerHTML
End Sub

'==============================================

Have fun!
