I'm trying to make a VB server (particularly a multi-threaded server) using
Winsock and VB 5.0.
I have a few questions.
Basically I "just" want a VB example program that implements a TCP/IP
server in Visual Basic.
I've found one book that covers implementing *client* programs using
Visual Basic and winsock... but that book had a single statement about
implementing a *server* that boiled down to "it's too hard and beyond
the scope of this book".
My application requires a TCP server running on Windows NT that will
wait for a client to send it a message and return some data. The
server is a VB 3.0 app, the client is a CGI perl script. The
interaction is fairly simple: client sends a command string, server
sends data back and disconnects.
In fact I'd be happy to have a copy of source for http on NT, if there
is such a thing? It's very similar to what I want to do.
Does anyone have any experience along these lines they'd like to
Any pointers to specific source, shareware VBXs, or books would be
I've investigated 3rd-party VBXs and DLLs, and although there are some
out there that should work, they seem like overkill -- and they charge
runtime licensing fees.
