    I left out the last part of the program to help cut down the size of this message.

    I really need your help with program. After I have finished writting it this program will be released as freeware.

    Thank you

    I really need your help with program.

    My original example did not contain any error detection/correction code. You were supposed to include it. Particularly, since it isn't working for you. What you need to do is, after every SOCKET_WRITE you need to put in a SOCKET_READLINE/PRINT pair, and visually inspect the results for an error message. Once you've identified the error, and solved it, you can remove them again.

    In actual fact, you should follow each SOCKET_WRITE with a SOCKET_READLINE and then have the program test for a success before moving on. If it fails, print an error message and halt.

    I tried that and the response I get back from the server is just all control charectors. So I can make heads or tails on what the error if they do exist.
