    Question VB connection through internet

    hi, i recently made a VB program which consists out of a client and a server.
    i got the program working on my lan network, but now i wanna take it a bit further and try to connect the 2 VB apps through the internet. i'm currently using the winsock command to connect them to each other on the LAN network. if it is possible to get a connection established between tehse 2 apps through the internet which command should i use. in case t is not possible, then which language should i swith to..?

    thanks in advance

    I have always been of the opinion that internet applications should be developed using web develoment lanaguges not desktop languages.

    VB6 is a desktop language that has some web capabilities, but that is not what it was designed for.

    PHP seems to be a pretty popular langauge for web apps so you might want to take a look at that.

    Your app should be able to use Winsock to communicate over the Internet just like it does on your LAN. There are lots of examples on the Web: http://www.google.com/search?q=vb+winsock+example
