UDP query (code only)

Hi I need UDP code for VB6 that will send the following query string : \xFE\xFD\x00"."AASF"."\xFF\xFF\xFF to a server on port 1717. The recieved data needs to be printed to a file, lets say c:\out.txt.

I want it to be code only, no form, just run the exe and get the txt file with the recieved data.

No one have any idea? It can involve using an external component too (must be froo though).
Here's an example using the Winsock control. Pres Ctrl+T and add "Microsoft Winsock Control x.x" and add 2 controls with the names of sckServer and sckClient.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    'send data to 1717 (sckServer)
    Dim strData As String
    'not sure about the below string.. ie: if you wanted to include the ".", "AASF" or send the
    'hex as longs or characters
    strData = Chr(&HFE) & Chr(&HFD) & Chr(&H0) & ".AASF." & Chr(&HFF) & Chr(&HFF) & Chr(&HFF)
    sckClient.Protocol = sckUDPProtocol
    sckClient.RemoteHost = ""
    sckClient.RemotePort = 1717
    sckClient.SendData strData
End Sub
Private Sub Form_Load()
    'bind server (udp) to port 1717
    sckServer.Protocol = sckUDPProtocol
    sckServer.LocalPort = 1717
End Sub
Private Sub sckServer_DataArrival(ByVal bytesTotal As Long)
    Dim strData As String
    'get data
    sckServer.GetData strData
    'print to "c:\test.txt"
    Open "c:\test.txt" For Output As 1
        Print #1, strData
    Close 1
End Sub
