    Having all sorts of issues trying to find a good example of this but how does one use sockets to log into a website, update something, then log out?

    Seems so simple yet I keep fininding examples of creating a server/client app all at once.

    Thanks

    For most things, it 's really easier to use the webbrowser object. Only if you need multi-threading / less resource hogging / obscure tricks, you should go to sockets.

    You can learn more about sockets in .net at a really good in depth article here.
