My tutorial. Writing TCP-enabled applications in QuickBASIC.

A pretty advanced tutorial. You'll need to know what interrupt calls are and how to use them. Describes and gives source code and comments on using QB with Peter Tattam's NTCPDRV TSR TCP stack for DOS. (with a packet driver of course) You need REAL DOS for this. http://www.rubbermallet.org/tcphelp.h...
