     After migrating to .NET, I found my biggest challenge was learning what in the world these 'sockets' were. I have a lot of programs in VB6 that use Winsock, but when I saw what a mess the Migration Wizard did to my code, I decided to do it myself. The problem was, I wanted to use, well a WINSOCK. I wanted to be able to listen and connect from one object. Seeing as how I couldn't find anything like that, I created it myself. This code has the standard functions winsock does, for those who just want to update older code, as well as some neat features I wish Winsock had, such as the FailedSocket event, which is called whenever a Connect fails. This way no disgusting loop and doevents and sleep is required! Amazing! This socket class has the ability to connect and to listen. It uses only one socket, so its memory efficient. MUCH WORK WAS PUT INTO THIS: RESEARCH, TESTING, DEBUGGING. PLEASE PLEASE VOTE!

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
