Hi..
i'm using a winsock control to transfer files between two computers which are in the same network..(LAN) and it works fine.
Is there a way to transfer a file to another computer that it is not in my network? For example from my computer to a friend's computer..

Any help would be appreciated..

Thanks

Hi KSS,
As far as the two computers are connected you can send/transfer file or data. Connecting Computers means it should be on network either by Wireless or using wires. But I believe you can send data sending using Telephone line if you and your friend are distance apart.

To know about Transferring file/data using telephone line, download Com.zip form Google, Yahoo etc.

Thanks

Thanks both of u for replying..

I tried it but it didn't work.
I have the Ip of the remote computer but there are 2..how should I use them?
The one that is used for the internet is static and the other is set by the rooter..

Thanks

Hi KSS,

If you are connected to the same router, you'd use the router-defined IP. If you're connecting over the Internet, use the internet-defined IP instead.

Note that the router must be forwarding the selected ports back to the destination PC for it to work (also ensure your application is granted access by any software firewall software on the computers too).

Hope that helps,
Jon

KSS,

I have attached a sample of downloading ANY file using winsock. All you need to do is change to the IP address online and off you go.

Thanks goes to Elucid siftware for this sample posted on vbforums. Please read the about form and please mention the author in your application.

I hope this helps.

My apologies to anyone who found the file corrupted. I have re-zipped it and attached it here. Have fun....:'(

There seems to be a problem downloading this. I thus went and tried to download another zip file from another thread and found the same problem, ouch. I tried another and the same problem occured. It seems that the problem might be from Daniweb???, don't know.

Irrespective, here is the full code. You need 3 forms - frmSave, frmExist, Main
You need 2 modules - PROBas, modDownload

I'll start with the last, modDownload -
