Default WinSocket File Transfer


I am creating a channel chat program.
I need to transfer Recorded WAV Files betwenn computers.
Now I want to transfer C:/Rec/Record.wav from Client to Server, then back, without the client that sent it take it.
I know how to do that, the only problem is sending it.
How do I do file transfer in winsock vb 10-11?
Any assistance?

the chat client should know what you are sending, separate full text with binary, use a header before the data, the receiving client should parse it, for example:

"BROADCAST|myusername|hello"
BROADCAST - sends a message to all connected clients
myusername - who sent it
hello - the message

PRIVATE|yourusername|myusername|hello
PRIVATE - sends a private message to a specific user
yourusername - who will receive
myusername - who sent it
hello - the message

FILE|yourusername|myusername|binary
FILE - send a file
yourusername - who will receive
myusername - who sent it
binary - the data of the file in bytes

once the data is there and since the receiving client knows that they received a file you can save the binary data to a file
