How to understand if my application is connected via lease line ?
Reason I am asking this question is that my application is meant for LAN
but my customers are using it across distant locations via lease lines.

note: I use Sockets to transfer data. I use Delphi 2007

Regards
Allan

do you want to stop access from remote clients or do you simply wish to see who is connected and where they're connected from?

I think just getting to know the speed will not help me. Is there any difference in LAN and when a machine in not Local and is connected via Lease line. Can we trap that difference ?

the only reliable way would be to guage the connection speed. a local client would receive a high transfer rate where as a client connected through a leased line would show a lower rate in comparison
