Should tcp/ip connection notice automaticly if client drops out when the computers network cable got detached or dialup-internet connection was lost.
My server should be able to test these hanging dead connections, because when the user reconnects it's username is already used in a hanging dead connection.
Is there a call in tcp/ip routines that could verify working connection without changing client or server by adding a ping routine.
I'm using Francois Piette's tcp/ip component (http://overbyte.alexid.fr/frame_index.html
) in delphi 1.2
