I see.

I am sure that there are some API's that are floating around that have encapsulated similiar functionality but I am sure that if you check it out, programming with sockets is not as difficult as it might sound.

I was surprised with how similiar sockets were to the WinInet control. A little bit more work, but not as much as I had originally thought.
