Getting Data from a TServerSocket

I have a TServerSocket that I am connecting to from a different machine using a TClientSocket. The TServerSocket Listens fine, then Connects and Accepts when the TClientSocket is set to Active. However when I use TClientSocket.Socket.SendStream to send out information the TServerSocket does not fire its OnClientRead event as I have been lead to believe it is suposed to. As far as I know the place to process the data comming from the TClientSocket is in the OnClientRead event. Am I missing something simple or have I got the process wrong? Any advise would be appreciated.

Is your ServerSocket.Active Set to true?

Are the Ports set correctly? (i.e. Ports = 1024)

Does the ClientSocket know what host is supposed to be talking to?

I think that is better at first you test ur application by SendText ( not SendStream ) and for learning the details see the Char Delphi standard Demo ( in folder Demo\Internet ) It is a good app and I started using TServerSocket & TClienSocket by this Demo!

best regards

I have actually sorted it out myself. (I had not been setting my TStream position back to 0 before trying to send it - D'oh!!). However had I not spotted this, I think your sugestion would have been the best way forward so I'm awarding the points quickly before too many other people catch on to my stupidity!
