Default Frequently Asked COMMUNICATION Questions....

1) Where can I find more info about the winsock control? - Try here:
winsockvb.com on archive.org

2) Where can I find more info about the Serial port? - This is a good place to start:
http://www.lvr.com/serport.htm

3) Where can I find more info about the Parallel port? - Try this site:
http://www.lvr.com/parport.htm

4) How can I control the individual lines of a serial/parallel port? - You need to use a 3rd party control that allows you to use INP and OUT commands (these commands are in QBasic but not VB). You can find INPOUT32.DLL at www.lvr.com which gives you access to these commands.
