VB based app with imbedded web server

VB based app with imbedded web server

Greetings et al...
I am looking for a way to embed a web server(html)and POP3/SMTP mail functions into a VB5 or 6 app. I know there are plug-ins that can be purchased to do that but I was wondering what the method of implementation would be to do it without a plug-in.


RE: VB based app with imbedded web server

Well..... You *could* use the MS Winsock control to write your own www, POP3 and SMTP servers but this is not easy to do -- There's a product called PowerTCP (no connection with myself) which I found to be very usable. There are others around as well - much more fun (and more productive) than writung your own.
