Socket communication

P: n/a
I'm trying to start using VB.Net as I've only used VBx. My first
attempt is to write a couple of applications that communicate via
socket ports. I could do this pretty easy in VB6 with the winsock
control and I know I can use this control in vb.net but was wondering
if there is a pure .net way. My server application will transmit data
(production stats) to several instances of the client running on
different computers. My problem is on the client side, the only
examples I can find use blocking functions to read the port. Isn't
there an event that gets raised when data is received or a way to
simulate it? Am I missing something here? Examples or links to ones
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Scott
