I think you should give more informations about what you want to do. Is your Winsock app running on the server? Does that app includes an HTTP server or something to directly connect onto? Please elaborate.

If what you're looking for is that info be stored on a server, available for access by your VB client program, probably your best bet would be to use the INet control (I'm pretty sure that's the one) which automates HTTP connections and such. So say you had usernames and passwords stored on your server at http://www.server.com/uname.pwl, you could set your INet control to download uname.pwl from www.server.com, store it in a temp file and parse it that way.

If you were looking for a program that sends data in real time, you will need to use Winsock, and you'll need to be able to run the server program on the server which means you will need to be running your OWN server...no free hosting. =P

Hope that helps.
