If you put a watch on the sockClient control when you execute, you'll notice that the State property is 6 (Connecting). You have to throw in a DoEvents statement so the Connect event can occur. After that, you should be good to go.

Here's the code:

Here's the code:

Private Sub cmdLogin_Click()
Dim ip, port As String
ip = "127.0.0.1"
port = "5500"
Me.sockClient.RemoteHost = ip
Me.sockClient.RemotePort = port
Me.sockClient.Connect

DoEvents

Dim temp As String
temp = "HELLO WORLD"
Me.sockClient.SendData temp

End Sub

Hope this helps!
