winsock / sockets in vb .net 2008 express
Just as a simple app I wanted something where by I could install either a service or app that runs in the system tray that could use tcp or udp sockets to communicate with a server application that had a GUI where it would display to start with just some info about the connected client computers ie
ip address, subnet mask, hostname , logged in username and maybe other info later on.
I did find this but it is more aimed at a chat app
Creating a Multi-User TCP Chat Application
Getting a bit confused now as I tried that along with a code project example etc and am not sure what bits of code I require and dont require as I dont want to replicate the info from one client to other clients I am only wanting the server application to be able to view this info in a list view or something of the likes
