Grab Client Information when OnConnect occurs (TServerSocket)

OVERVIEW:
The application was designed in three moduls, they are:
1. Server (TServerSocket)
   Will receive any message from Controller, and send it
   to specified Terminal.
2. Client/Terminal (TClientSocket)
   Will only act as a message receiver.
3. Controller (TClientSocket)
   Specify the destination (Terminal) and send message to
   Server.

When the Controller connected to Server, it will receive
a LIST of active-connections (connected terminal) and
updated by Server everytime there were new connection or
disconnection. The Controller will using this LIST to
specify which Terminal will receive its message.

QUESTION:
The LIST will contain information of each active Terminal,
I want it contains the Terminal's IPAddress, HostName, ConnectionNumber, etc... I think Server would get this
info on the ClientConnect event, but how?

I have tried this, but it just contained null string.

procedure TfrmServer.sskServerClientConnect(Sender:
  TObject; Socket: TCustomWinSocket);
begin
   aClient.sIP := TClientSocket(Sender).Address;
   aClient.sName := TClientSocket(Sender).Host;
......
......

Help me please....

aClient.sIP := Socket.RemoteAddress;
aClient.sName := Socket.RemoteHost;
