Hello Francois, Exactly what I do now, but what reference do you pass to thread ? At beginning I did it with socket.handle (if I remember well by it was long time ago) by I noticed that if during work job the socket is closed and a new connexion come, then it could happend that this new socket get same handle as previous closed one so my worker may sent back data to wrong client. That is why I know use an incremental SessionID counter that I pass to worker to be sure to never send data back to wrong socket and be sure to always get unique ID among thousand of connections.
