Dear Delphi-experts,

I have to create a server application that has to recieve thousands (5.000 is the maximum) messages at the same or almost the same time. They all come from different clients.
The message are short (1028 bytes maximum) and have to be send with TCP-protocol want I have to be sure that the arrive.

What kind of method does I have to use?
Does I keep a connection with all the clients all te time or does I have to create a connection every time a client sends a message?

Who can help me?


Many thanks!!

You can build a server, to which 5000 clients can connect. Each connection can be left open as long as desired or until an error occurs. The big is: will it be fast enough to handle 5000 simultanious clients? I think this is more a hardware problem than a software problem.

Give me your email address an I'll send you a demo of a simple server and a client.

Well, first off, do you have the ability to request a resend from the clients if you miss any messages?
