Not really that important to be specific - indeed I cannot be more specific because the answer could be "all three". Anyway what would the difference be other than the NIC having a different source address?

Assume my device has an IP address associated with a NIC (either activesync, wifi, or GPRS, or indeed cabled ethernet). I want to connect using TCP to some arbitrary host from the pocket PC to transfer some data. I can do all of this using winsock and VB on the PC - I just need to know the pocket PC equivalent to winsock I suppose.

Cheers

No, sorry, you've misunderstood me again. I'm not using HTTP or FTP. Windows Sockets does not have FTP and HTTP functionality directly.

I am writing a client and a server that will communicate on an arbitary TCP port with a protocol of my specification, not HTTP or FTP or whatever.
