I have been using wisock control for soemtime but I have discovered that there exists a problem . If you have a client winsock that is connected to a remote server, then you remove the network connection the client will still show that it is connected. Is there a way I can be able to detect that the connection does not exist, such that I can display the real status of the connection.

Just imagine how much more traffic there would be if every X time interval every connected port in the world asked the other end if they were still there!

It's up to you to decide a timeout for your connections.
