idTCPClient acknowledgement to server disconnect
Posted on 2008-06-18
Possibly a very dopey request here. II am a complete newby to INDY. I have been assigned the task of maintaining an application that delivers message to a server with idTCPClient. Normally, given the volumes of data transmitted, we leave the socket open after delivery. All works fine.
I have a request to acknowledge a FIN message sent by the server if the connection has been in idle for a period of time. They would like our client application to acknowledge the message to continue with the disconnect.
We are currently using D6/Indy8(!).
As I do not fully understand the mechanics of Indy, I am not sure where to start. Can someone give me some pointers on how a FIN message should be acknknowledged.
