vrf Thanks for downloading SocketWrench Freeware Edition

Question asked by VRFuser on Oct 5, 2002

Thank you for downloading SocketWrench Freeware Edition.

SocketWrench Secure Edition 4.0 has been released! This completely
new version of SocketWrench has been redesigned to make developing
Windows Sockets applications even easier for Windows developers.
This commercial release of SocketWrench can be used to build client
and server applications and supports both standard and secure
connections using the standard SSL/TLS protocols. With SocketWrench
Secure 4.0, you can design and implement your own secure servers,
build state of the art client applications and much more!

We will still provide and support the freeware version which is not
secure. However, you may well appreciate downloading and checking out
the NEW SocketWrench Secure Edition 4.0. It requires no third party
dependencies and is the first completely rewritten version of
SocketWrench in seven years. It will also co-exist on the same
machine as the freeware version without causing any conflicts...
so check it out!

If you had trouble receiving the files, you may wish to try an
alternate download location or transfer protocol. Our primary
file server is located in Virginia, however we have several
servers located throughout the United States as well as a
server in London, England.

If you continue to have problems, we have a couple of additional
options for you. You can arrange to have the file sent to you
as an attachment to an email. To receive the file through email,
simply send an email to:

and in the body of the message place one of the following (NOT
BOTH), depending on whether you are looking for the 16-bit or
32-bit version of SocketWrench.

    get wrench16


    get wrench32

Our mail server will automatically generate a reply to your
message, using the same email address that you use to send the
request, with the attachment. The actual case doesn't matter
(it can be upper or lower), and the subject line is ignored.
Shortly thereafter, you will receive a reply that contains the
SocketWrench in ZIP format.

The request must be sent as a simple text message; mail clients
like Outlook (which tend to send mail as formatted HTML or RTF)
should use plain text. You need to verify first that your ISP
allows messages with attachments in the 5-10Mb range, otherwise
you are wasting your time in that your ISP will not allow the
email to be delivered to you.

Another option available is that you can order a free evaluation
CD-ROM which contains all editions of SocketTools as well as
SocketWrench (note that there will be a small shipping and
handling charge). If you wish to order the CD-ROM, you can place
the order online at

While you're there, be sure to check out the commercial package
that evolved from SocketWrench. SocketTools is a collection of
TCP/IP networking components and libraries for the Windows
operating system. The SocketTools product comes in several
different editions, depending on the needs of the developer and
the language or scripting tool being used. Both 16-bit and 32-bit
Windows platforms are supported, from Windows 3.1 to Windows NT,
and each edition contains comprehensive samples, on-line
documentation and technical references. All SocketTools editions
include an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee, and there
are no additional runtime licensing fees or royalties.

The new SocketTools Secure Editions have been released! These
new additions to the SocketTools family of products enable you
to easily establish secure connections over the Internet using
the standard SSL, TLS and PCT security protocols. Available for
all 32-bit Windows platforms, the Secure Edition components
provide support for the HTTPS, FTPS, SMTPS, POP3S, NNTPS and
secure TELNET protocols. The same controls and libraries in the
Secure Edition can be used to establish both secure and non-secure
connections, and are completely backwards compatible with the
existing control and library interfaces. For more information
about the Secure Editions, read our SocketTools Secure Edition FAQ:
