DELPHIer,

For the Socket Component, what is TServerClientThread and TCustomSocket ? And what is the differences between TClientWinSocket and TClientSocket or TServerWinSocket and TServerSocket respectively ?

Hi

The TServerClientThread is managed by TServerWinSocket components.  One thread is created for each client so that the main program's speed isn't affected.  You don't need to worry about TServerClientThreads as the TServerWinSocket manages these for you.

TCustomSocket is the base class for the socket components, i.e. TClientSocket and TServerSocket.  Similarly, TCustomWinSocket is the base class for TClientWinSocket and TServerWinSocket.  The difference between T???Socket and T???WinSocket is that the T???WinSocket components use a different set of Windows API calls (WSA...) specially developed for using sockets in Windows.  In other words, the main difference is that TClientSocket and TServerSocket use different API calls from TClientWinSocket and TServerWinSocket.

Regards,
JB

Both do.  In Delphi, the components are TClientSocket and TServerSocket (which use TClientWinSocket and TServerWinSocket internally).  If you want to use components (which is recommended) then you must use TClientSocket & TServerSocket, because the T???WinSocket components are NOT Delphi components.  When you use TClientSocket, TClientWinSocket is used internally.  Similarly, when you use the TServerSocket component, TServerWinSocket is used internally.
