Beware the Jabberwock, my son - OS/2 Version 2.11 and earlier versions do not support
all the networking calls made by Windows programs. This means that when you use
your VB retrieval program in a WINOS2 window on a network machine booted with OS/2 -
you may not get what you asked for... you may not get anything at all...
To be sure, boot your computer under MS-DOS, then load MS-WINDOWS and run your VB
program - it will work.
Other than that, if you really must use OS/2 then get WARPed.
