Both computers will be running WIndows XP. I am a bit confused whether I have to use TCP/IP protocol and Winsock.dll. Will they solve the problem of both computers sending at the same time i.e. does the receipt of a byte cause an interrupt on the ethernet port and thus cause an interrupt in my program? How would I detect this?
I need to write the program in VB and not C due to other hardware that will referenced by my program. I do not need a database solution as any data receive will only be displayed on the VDU & not saved.
