You probably want to ask why.
Because in order to talk to a certain hardware device,
It will only respond to my requests if the source computer uses port 7777.

I'm using VB2005, ya, it's old.

Here is a smattering of my code.
Dim tcpClient As New System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient()
       tcpClient.Connect("", 2000)
       Dim networkStream As NetworkStream = tcpClient.GetStream()
       If networkStream.CanWrite And networkStream.CanRead Then
           ' Send some data.
           Dim sendBytes As [Byte]() = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("IE") & Chr(13)
           networkStream.Write(sendBytes, 0, sendBytes.Length)

Would i somehow use the following?
Dim localEP As System.Net.EndPoint = ""

Solution 2

It seems i tried that and had some problem with it.
Yesterday i found this code that worked.
Dim localIP As IPAddress = IPAddress.Parse("")
Dim localPort As Int16 = 7775
Dim remoteIP As IPAddress = IPAddress.Parse("")
Dim remotePort As Int16 = 7777
Dim remoteEP As IPEndPoint = New IPEndPoint(remoteIP, remotePort)
Dim localEP As IPEndPoint = New IPEndPoint(localIP, localPort)
Dim client As TcpClient = New TcpClient(localEP)
