well I have 2 questions 1: Has anyone used (or can anyone point me to a good tutorial on it) System.Net.Sockets.Socket in Visual Basic .net (7)? and 2: How do I get multiple connections to one server, do I keep an array of winsock connections, but what about the ports, it will all be on the same port...is that ok? Thank You! <- Digital Explosions -> "Discipline is my sword, faith is my shield do not dive into uncertainty, and you may live to reap the rewards" - (Unreal Championship)

1) No
2) The only socket for which the port matters is the listening socket. Accepted connections get assigned a ''random'' port by the OS. If you get ''address in use'' errors, set the SO_REUSEADDR option (or something similar).
