SocketWrench is a general-purpose TCP/IP networking component designed to simplify the development of Internet client and server applications. Using SocketWrench, you can connect to virtually any service over the Internet, create your own custom servers, or integrate network functionality into your own software without being an expert in network programming.

SocketWrench includes managed .NET classes for Visual Basic and C#, ActiveX controls (OCXs) for use with languages such as Visual Basic 6.0 and dBase, and standard windows libraries (DLLs) for use with C++ and most other Windows programming languages.

SocketTools requires Windows XP SP3 or Windows Server 2003 SP2 or later versions of the Windows desktop or server platforms. Both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms are supported for development and redistribution. SocketTools fully supports Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019, including Windows Server VMs on the Microsoft Azure platform.

A trial version of SocketTools can only be used by the developer who installed it and the components cannot be redistributed to another system. After the evaluation period has expired, you may choose to purchase the product and upgrade the evaluation license to a full development license.

An evaluation license can be converted to a development license without requiring you to reinstall SocketTools. Purchasing a license will not impact any applications that you have developed during the trial period. They will continue to use the same SocketTools components and you will be able to redistribute them to your end users.
