Hi Beto,

do you mean that server needs to initiate communication with client? It looks like wrong concept, not sure that it is possible, or you need to have server on client part.

Hi netbeto,

usually, client connects to the server and ask server to do something. There is TClientSocket and TServerSocket components.

TServerSocket allow you to reply users using different threads. See threadblocking mode. TClientSocket also need to run in blocking mode. Working bu this way you should'n tave propblems with amount of clients.
