Getting Documentation

I am a new VB programmer. I have been researching into VB programming using soom custom VBX's for TCP/IP type of stuff. I need to know if there is a book or some kind of DOC I can get that explains WinSock1.1 Standards. I know some of the basic command like PWD and CWD but need to find some information about all the other kind of commands like LIST and RETR. How do I get the information back?? I submit the command and get a good response but where is my output?? Can you help me out?

The best and authoritative source for help on all the Internet protocols are the RFCs stored at www.internic.net. There are certain RFCs that deal with each protocol, such as FTP. I would imagine that somewhere in the docs for your control they mention the RFC numbers. I don't have them handy, unfortunately. The best idea is to just go to the InterNIC site and page through the RFCs there to find the commands.
