What is exacly the exception message ?

You have to call Close (or CloseDelayed), and in OnSessionClosed you
post a message to custom message handler where you connect again.

Both are good. Closing / opening will be the most preferabel in my

Is it 'no buffer space available' ? Because Windows keep the socket for
a while after closing the connection (I think 2 minute). Sockets are
made into the non paged memory pool which stop growing at 1/8 the size
of physical RAM. So with the amount of sockets in TIME_WAIT state + the
sockets you create it could be that you run out of memory ? Consider
that a socket takes around 2 KB, and that overlapped IO (used by
winsock) eat also in blocks of 4 KB.

I cannot see the exact exception message. Can you give it ?

Definitively not. But possible you have a memory problem because of the
TIME_WAIT sockets (nothing to do with ICS, but that's how winsock

Use OnSessionClosed. But do not reconnect from within the event handler,
but post a custom message so that the reconnect is outside the event.
