Indy: TIdTCPServer.OnDisconnect woes (part II)

It appears that the AThread.Connection.Socket.Binding property is not assigned if a client crashes (AThread: TIdPeerThread is the argument of the TIdTCPServer.OnDisconnect event). How can I get the IP address and the port of the connection that has gone (AThread.Connection.Socket.Binding.PeerIP, AThread.Connection.Socket.Binding.PeerPort)? I need them to free corresponding resources. Actually I loop through an IP-port list and look up the item that's missing in my server instance (<- not very clever?).

Thanks!

I am not sure I understood you, but maybe it is released when the socket crashes... You can rely on some external storage for the connections, because when client crashes, the socket is gone...
