The IP address of the client comes with each TPC frame, so it you stick the hSocket into the procedure getsocketname it will return a TSockAddr structure containing the IP address. OK?

procedure TForm1.ServerSocket1ClientConnect(Sender: TObject;
  Socket: TCustomWinSocket);
  ShowMessage( Socket.RemoteAddress ) ;
