Delphi Indy tcp server

I try to create an application
that takes all  data from a printout and save to a uniqe filename (or insert into a database)

it seems to work  as long as I don't try to print two documents at the same time.
How can I solve this...

My code::

    sl : TstringList;
    MyDataStr : string;


procedure TfForm1.IdTCPServer1Connect(AContext: TIdContext);
   sl :=TstringList.Create;
  MyDataStr:= '';


procedure TForm1.IdTCPServer1Disconnect(AContext: TIdContext);
  sl.Text:= MyDataStr;
  sl.SaveToFile(MyDir+ \GetUniqeFileName);

You need create string list by context (create separate string list by each client connected)

procedure TfForm1.IdTCPServer1Connect(AContext: TIdContext);
   AContext.Data := TstringList.Create;

procedure TForm1.IdTCPServer1Disconnect(AContext: TIdContext);
  CliContext: TStringList;
    CliContext.SaveToFile(MyDir+ \GetUniqeFileName); 
    AContext.Data := nil;

procedure TfForm1.IdTCPServer1Execute(AContext: TIdContext);
    if not AContext.Connection.IOHandler.InputBufferIsEmpty then
      ...read bytes here and store in string list as 

Open in new window

sl  and MyDataStr is no longer needed ...
