        Dim s As New   Socket  (lep.Address.AddressFamily,   Socket  Type.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp)

        Dim msg As String = "This is a test" & Chr(10)

            ' Sends datagram to the IpEndPoint specified.  This call blocks.  
            s.SendTo(msg, 0, msg.Length,   Socket  Flags.None, lep)

            ' Creates an IpEndPoint to capture the identity of the sending host.
            Dim sender As New IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any, 0)

            ' Creates a byte buffer to receive the message.
            Dim buffer(1024) As Byte

            ' Receives datagram from a remote host.   This call blocks.
