Join me tomorrow for part two of this article in which I will show you how to create a PHP script to interface with our VB app using sockets and our custom SARP protocol. Until then, feel free to download and modify this articles source code, and also learn more about protocols and Winsock by purchasing some of the books below or visiting the links shown below under the related links section.
