Hi,
Tcplistener is a class that listen the TCP connetions. If you have work with WinSocket control this class behaves like a that. It listen and accept incoming connection requests. You can initiate this class by providing IP address and the port number. If you do not know the IP address of the machine on which you are initiating this class you can also use Any keyword.
Example -
Private listener As TcpListener
listener = New TcpListener(System.Net.IPAddress.Any, YourPortNumber)
listener.Start() method will start the listener to listen any incoming request from other TCP clients.
After start listening to the incoming request you have to make a listening loop that will wait and listen any incoming client connection request

While True
  Dim client As TcpClient = server.AcceptTcpClient() ' On this line your code will stop and wait for any incoming client request
  ' Now you can use client (TcpClient) property and methods
  client.GetStream ' This method is perticularly useful to read and send the data to the connected client
  client.Close ' Shutdown and end connection
End While

This is just an overview of Tcplistener class. For more detail explanation please visit to
