Answer: Anything is possible, you just need to work at it.

Real Answer P1: You can't use VB.Net - that's an entirely Microsoft technology!
Real Answer P2: Yes you can do a server/client. I've done it. Sadly, I can't post my Java code in an article because it's being used in a paid-for project so I can't open source it. Hmm...perhaps that should tell you something - it's a lot of work! I based my Java Networking Library on the back of my C# one: (also, see my CP articles). Perhaps my 2 articles and CodePlex project will be enough inspiration for you to do something yourself. Note: The Java code is Very similar to the C# code.


Edit: You could probably (with a lot of effort), write the VB.Net code, compile it to assembler, convert the Windows/Intel assembler code to Android/ARM assembler then, decompile to Java then bundle the Java into an apk but that would be a horrendous and messy process which is almost guaranteed to break down somewhere.

Edit 2: If you wanted to create a VB.Net Windows Server and connect the Android phone as a client, that is certainly possible and doable with my libraries (which are C#.Net but C#.Net and VB.Net can be used almost interchangeably) (plus you'd need to do a little bit of code to do Java to .Net int conversion i.e. big-endian to little-endian and visa-verse .
