Sounds funny I know however I mostly write database programs. I was wanting to write a game that I can place on a server and have people on the network connect and play. In VB6 you would use a winsock control to do this. What is the equivlent in .NET ?? I don't see any type of control in the toolbox that would do this?

.NET has a lot of classes which may be used for communications. Just find a good sample and see how this is done. For example, this is a good chat sample in C#:

Thanks guys for the help but I found what I was looking for.

.NET uses the System.Net.Sockets class for network communications. If you guys are interested you can read about it here. I'm going to split the points between you 2 for your efforts thanks again.
