Hi!

I want to programm a server on Linux RedHat 9. In windows nt there exist services to run servers. Is there something similar in Linux? How can I make a server that will run at system-start and withouth xWindows and any GUI?

I tried to work with a console application and starting threads but I do not know how to keep the server on running for example listening to any messages recieved by a TTcpServer. It has something to do with Handles and Events, but I do not know how to make this.

Any exampes would be really great!

Thanx

Kai

In linux they're called daemons.  

A daemon generally has a main thread that blocks until a kill signal is received.  It spawns a listener thread that waits for a connection to be established, then negotiates a port for the actual data connection to be made on.  When the port negotiation is complete, another thread is spawned for the specific port to communicate with.

linux/unix server programming is quite different from Windows server programming.

Check out the kylix links from overbyte.delphicenter.com  There will be some good examples there.
