I have an instrument that communicate with an ethernet card (using a JAVA applet). I am not new in VB programming but my experience with Internet/Ethernet communication is limited. The instrument/device response when using IE to commands with the form of "http:\\IP
Address\command?" I would like to use VB to send this command using a http connection and direct the return to a file of some sort. I guess what I am missing is the right control to use! Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Also, please avoid giving answers in terms of link to other pages as I will not bother looking.
