     Sox is a project to make a fast, lightweight and easy to use WinSock server. The OCX is written in C/C++, but I've written 2 apps in VB that demonstrate the use of Sox. The first is a project that demonstrates most of the common features in a single application and the second, is a Client/Server chat program. You will notice the code is short, because it's simple to use and powerful enough to handle at least 7000 simultaneous connections with only 300K of memory, and should be easy to read and follow! Read the Readme.doc file inside for further instructions. Happy coding! (Update: I've added 1 new function (RemoteHostIP) and cleaned my Error reporting code, the OCX is now almost half the original size, at 28K)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. 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.

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