Does anyone know where I can find complete instructions on TCP/IP operations as well as ICMP? I saw another post from somone asking about this and went to the future basic unofficial homepage, but no code files or tutorials, just a program to FINGER@email. I even visited their links, to no avail. I have FutureBasic 1.02, and I was reading the reference manual looking for TCP/IP operations and I found the section in the index. I turned to the page and low and behold... It told me to call some number that I believe is back east. I called the number and reached a house where a man answered the phone. He said to email him at "pheonix@...", so I did this and he never sent me the files. Hmmm... If it will help you any I am trying to do a number of things via TCP/IP and ICMP such as create a network station where I can link up with other people on macs using my program. Not only that, I want to create a program that can ping to test connections, DNS query and trace route, as well as finger and if possible i'd like to learn about sockets and or ports and how they are used with futurebasic. I'm at my wits end here and i've tried everything, can anyone help? If so I would appreciate it alot. Thanks.
