Im writing up a time server which connects with clients asynchronously. I am able to pick up the socket exceptions thrown when client disconnects remotely/by force but when i pull the client network cable out (i.e. event of network failure) how can i kno that the particular client socket is no longer connected? How would I ping the client to find out? I tried sending a message using a timer event but its not throwing any exceptions when i try to send to the diconnected client!

Thanks in advance

I take it from your description that you are using TCP. As I understand it, TCP will keep trying to send your message for a very long time (it is a reliable transport). You may be able to change the timeout for the TCP connection, or you could implement your own timeout (i.e. send keepalive messages, and if you don't get one within a certain period, close the connection).
