Posted on 2004-05-02
Last Modified: 2010-05-02
Hi, I wanted to know if there was any way that I could possibly send a packet and control its headers in VB. Also, I would greatly appriciate it if anyone could tell me how to retrieve incomming packets, like a packet sniffer. I would gladly award extra points to anyone who can help me out with this! Thanks!

ennixo, I may very well accept your answer as the correct answer. Using the source code you gave me, I was able to construct a program that can send out packets and control the headers, I just need to complete it and make sure everything works.
