php can act as a server in many respects, it can handle sockets, some
streams etc..... so the the answer is yes, you can connect to it from
anything. (for instance I'm currently building a plugin to Lightwave that
connects to php)... programs commonly use http to connect (it's simple then
designing your own protocol in most cases... eg yahoo messenger).

The question is much more a VB question.. I know VB can connect to the web,
couldn't tell you how tho, try asking in a vb forum. If writing in a normal
programming language there is libwww from w3c ( that can do it all
for you (this is what we use)
