There is no such thing called as a -ve byte.

Probably you mean to say you want to send a byte which represents a negative number. This isn't any different from sending a "normal" byte. If you remember, presentation of negative numbers can be done in two ways, 1's compliment and 2's compliment. Anyway, in order to send a byte representing a negative number you don't need to know all that. Just send it like a number. Dont send it like a string, send it like a number. Let the minus sign (-) preceed the number, VB will automatically send an appropriate byte to the socket.
