     This code will let you use the power of .NETs System.Net.Sockets like the Winsock Control in Visual Basic 6. I have included a nice and compact version of an IRC client which you can use as an example on how to use this class. Please take the time to vote for it and give me some feedback with what you think. Version 1.1 fixes reconnection errors.

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
