Hi:
    I currnetly have a program that sends a file from a restaurant to the home office using a modem and the sax comm controls. We are switching to all dsl lines as tthe phone lines are not able to go through all the time. We get a lot of connection unavailable sending errors. Can anyone help me with the code I will need to send the file through the internet to a computer that has a static ip address. Thanyk You in advance Frank

Hello.

You could use Winsock ActiveX control to write your own file transfer. It's not that hard.

If you have problems with the code, we could help, but don't ask an expert to write the whole thing for you.

Regards, Julian.

I will try to use the winsock control. My program has over 10000 lines of code. I wrote all the code but I do not know how to transfer files over the internet or how to find out about it. The only lines of code that are not mine are the sax comm controls I purchased to send the files over the phone lines. Where would I goto to learn how to transfer the file over the internet??
