WINSOCK PROGRAMMING

Hello All:

Our company has an autodialing program that was written in C++. We have a source code too. Now we want to do the networking.
this is what program does:
It dials a number. Gives options to the reciever and then reciever presses a number like # to be transfered back to our office.
Problem:
We want to do a networking in a way that when the reciever gets transferred, his phone number should appear on the computer that is infront of the operator.
I was thinking to use winsock so the computer(which has the number files and is dialing the number) can send the active number to the operator so the operator knows what number is calling.
Any body has solution for this. I know its very hard so I am giving out 500 points.
I will appreciate your help.
Can I use VB code to work with C++ program as I am not too much familiar with C but VB will not be hard for me.
Thank You
Asim

It is tempting to get you into C++ development, but if you are comfortable writing the Winsock client in VB, it might be better to encourage you to develop a DLL, which is called from C++. Do you have the skillset to write a Winsock cilent in VB, and implement it as a DLL? If so, it narrows down your C++ development requirement significantly.

Sorry not to have responded. I missed the e-mail from EE to say that you'd commented. Have you found out how to call a DLL, or do you need links?
