TCP/IP waitting time
Posted on 2002-06-12
I am using Indy IdTCPServer and IdTCPClient to build two programs that run on different computers.
Normally, IdTCPClient sends a text to IdTCPServer without problem. Sometimes if the computer that has IdTCPServer is not swithed on then IdTCPClient got error. That is acceptable, but the problem is the program is frozen to waiting the error, it normally waits for more than 15 seconds. I wish the program can only wait for 2 or 3 seconds, that means if it cannot find the destination computer(by computer name or IP address) in 2 or 3 seconds then returns an error immediately. How can I do this?
BTW, I do have to use Indy.
Thank u very much in advance.
