    Specify the remote address and the remote port. Which control are you using?
    The most difficult part of developing a program is understanding the problem.
    The second most difficult part is deciding how you're going to solve the problem.
    Actually writing the program (translating your solution into some computer language) is the easiest part.

    Please indent your code and use [HIGHLIGHT="VB"] [/HIGHLIGHT] tags around it to make it easier to read.

    I am not using any control at the moment.
    I am just trying to create this connection by any means.
    Can I use Inet?

    Inet or Winsock - search the forum for code. There's plenty of it.

    I know how the Inet and Winsock controls work, but I cant get it to connect to the IP and Port I need. The Port is not a ftp or http or any other recognised port.

    If it has a number you can connect to it. If you don't know the port number you can't.

    I know the IP and port.
    I just don't know how to connect to it.

    Lookup the Winsock control. That's an easy way to initiate a raw TCP or UDP connection to a remote host through VB6.

    There are numerous examples of how to use Winsock right here on the forums. You should find something you can use pretty easily.
