More information:
The author has searched long and hard for a way to send binary file data, like images, between comptuers over a basic TCP/IP connection using the VB Winsock Controll. In this sample project you will see how to send any information, such as chat or file data, between two comptuers over a TCP server/client connection. It also allows for Multipul clients to connect to the server, and if a connection is not established, it will attempt to reconnect.
