I'm a little lost on this subject. What exactly is winsock programming and what language are we talking about. I have a project where I'm supposed to "pickup" data at 192.168.1.181:59003 from a digital phone system. I can open hyperterminal and "get" the data which means I can see it on the screen. How am I supposed to get that data into an html page where I can create rows in an SQL table?
