     This code (the first of its kind in the VB.NET section of PSC) will allow you to quickly and easily send a file over dialup, LAN or BroadBand. Works fine, and all the programs that i tested it on (from 20k to 200Meg worked fine after the transfer!) If you have a brief knowlage of file manipulation, this should be pretty simple to understand.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com

When i run on VB 2020 I got error on rcvdData on wsReceive.GetData(RcvdData)
at form receive data.

and ReadData on FileGet(ReadNum, ReadData)

and wsSend.State on If wsSend.State <> MSWinsockLib.StateConstants.sckClosed

Why ?
