     Sox is a 'best of breed' project incorporating many hours of study and testing! With the ability to adjust ALL WinSock API features, eg. KeepAlives, TCP_NODELAY or the Send and Receive buffer sizes, you have the full power and flexability of the API at your disposal! This project utilizes the fastest methods in every aspect, from the Data Buffers to the Sockets Array (all other projects use a 'slow' collection) and is guaranteed to outperform any other project of this nature! If its heavy duty with high traffic, then Sox is your VB answer!

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Thanks for the code but ...
On startup with your initial setup doing a Bind shows no errors. But then doing a Listen errors out. If I startup and do first a Listen I can then communicate both ways however the communications only registers on the server side. However and Client send does not send what I change in the client data textbox. It sends "Hello" regardless.
Also, please state what Hook and UnHook are required for.
I tried all of the above with and without hooking and get the same results.
