HTTP kills TCP/IP 'Listen'
I have a TCP/IP which initiates a 'Listen' for a continuous periodic data update. This works flawlessly by itself.
When I send an HTTP message to a different port and a slighty different DSN, the TCP/IP periodic data updates stop.
These are in the same VB6 Module.
Nowhere in the module do I affect the TCP/IP except in the Winsock code subroutines.
Do I need to have a different application to communicate with these two servers?
If so, is there a direct way to write to a variable in one VB6 application to another? Or do I have to use an intermediatory like a DLL, a file, an Excel sheet or ....?
I know about 'Channelling' but have had problems trying to implement it. Is it implementable in VB6?
Will a Background Worker separate the HTTPS and the Winsock TCP/IP and allow the two communications to function without needing an intermediatory data hand off?
Good software like good food takes time to prepare.
