I am developing an application that connects to a bank host: cert.ssl.globalpay.com and port: 443. What activex component should I use to be able to connect, send a string of data and receive the response from the host? I used the ActiveX from Chilkat but I'm getting an error 'Cannot interpret(something like that..) received bytes as ANSI characters.'. Any other method that I should use to be able to complete the application?

Port 443 is the standard SSL/TLS port for the HTTP protocol. You would probably use the Chilkat HTTP ActiveX component to communicate with that server in a VB6 application.
