What can I use for file transfer, instead of using winsock?  It seems as if it tops at 8192 bytes per xfer I guess you could say.  Is there anyway to raise this, or is there any other controls i could use that would do that same thing, with higher bytes transferred?

Generally you would upload chunks of the source file to the destination file, i.e. 2048 bytes at a time rather than uploading the entire file at once.

There are FTP samples of this at www.vbip.com (in fact you will find loads of FTP samples using controls with Inet control to the Winsock API)
