||SocketWrench 3.6 Freeware Edition is a general purpose package that simplifies Windows Sockets programming. For developers new to Internet software development, SocketWrench greatly reduces the learning curve typically associated with socket programming and TCP/IP in general. With packages available for both 16-bit and 32-bit platforms, SocketWrench is designed to meet the needs of developers writing software for all versions of Windows. The SocketWrench components are available as 16-bit Visual Basic controls (VBXs) as well as 16-bit and 32-bit ActiveX controls (OCXs) and can be used in a wide variety of development languages. The Windows Sockets control included in the SocketWrench 3.6 Freeware Edition package gives you all of the functionality you need to write both client and server applications. Unlike other packages which provide client-only services, or require you to learn how to use two (or more) controls, you can build virtually any type of application with SocketWrench using either the TCP or UDP protocols. Included with the SocketWrench package is a Remote Access Services (RAS) dialer control. This component allows you to easily manage dial-up networking sessions under Windows 95 or Windows NT directly from within your application. Instead of depending on the autodial feature, you can take direct control of the session (including determining if a dial-up networking session is already active and monitor the connection status). The SocketWrench package is completely free, and may be used to create freeware, shareware or commercial software packages without any runtime licensing fees or royalties.
