Hello, I'm tryinyg to make a TCP listener in visual basic 2010 requested at college. I manage to create the TCPclient but haven't been able to create the TCP listener class. I have some examples, but I don't know how to set the code. I'm using the visual studio 2010 windows form application to program the TCP, but I'm not sure how to set the design, I don't know if the code goes in a button, a text box, label, etc. It will be really helpful if someone help me get an example of the design. Here is the code I have and I'm trying to use to create a good and simple TCP server. If someone can help me with these I'll be really grateful.
