A socket by itself is not a protocol nor it implement any handshake. A socket is just an abstraction layer to access network services. It is the link to low level protocol engine such as TCP/IP and the applications which then can implement higher level protocols such as HTTP (for web) and SMTP or POP3 for email. You should better describe your problem and you'll get a better answer. -- francois.pie...@overbyte.be Embarcadero MVP http://www.overbyte.be http://francois-piette.blogspot.com -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
