Hello everyone, I'm trying to create a desktop application that will update my IPv4 address to an IPv6 Tunnel broker.  I have the app running up to the point where it sends the data to the website, and then I get exceptions.  I'd like someone to take a look at my code, and tell me what I've got wrong (if anything).  Here's the code that I have (the only portion that is filled in is for Hurricane Electric) Dim strUsername As String = txtUsername.Text.ToString 'User Id supplied by the User. Dim strPassword As String = txtPassword.Text.ToString 'Password supplied by the User. Dim strPasswordHash As String = "" ' this will be created from the hashing of the password supplied by the user. Dim strTunnelID As String = txtGlobalTunnelId.Text.ToString 'Global Tunnel ID (He.net and ) Dim strUrl As String = "" ' Place holder for the URL Which will be provided after the password is hashed and specified by the tunnel broker. Dim strTunnelBroker As String = cbxTunnelBroker.SelectedItem 'Sets the Tunnel Broker to the user specified one. Dim wc As New WebClient() 'Allows for posting data to the server 'holds the server response. Dim strData As String = "" 'Provides the data for the form. Dim result As String = "" Select Case strTunnelBroker Case

Obfuscate It: Thwart Reverse Engineering of Your Visual Basic .NET or C# Code


One of the advantages of the .NET architecture is that assemblies built with it contain lots of useful information that can be recovered using ILDASM, the intermediate language disassembler. A side effect, though, is that someone with access to your binaries can recover a good approximation of the original source code. Here the authors present program obfuscation as a way to deter reverse engineering. In addition, they discuss the different types of obfuscation technologies available and demonstrate the new obfuscation tool that is included in Visual Studio .NET 2003.

Pocket PC: Migrating a GPS App from the Desktop to eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0


A Global Positioning System (GPS) device captures lots of interesting information that can be used in many ways. This article presents a custom application built with Visual Basic that collects data from a GPS satellite and charts the course of a user relative to the satellite. Such an application is obviously well suited for use on a handheld PC and porting the original application to eMbedded Visual Basic for Windows CE is described. The differences between Visual Basic and eMbedded Visual Basic, such as support for specific control and data types, are explained. Tips for dealing with reduced screen real estate on a handheld PC, debugging, and running in an emulator are also discussed.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
