The TimeoutIdle property is part of an undocumented, experimental TCustomTimeoutWSocket component. Without examining the code, I've no idea what this property is designed to do, never used it. But no other application could effect this property. Generally, Windows TCP/IP registry setting define to connection timeout, there is no inherent idle timeout in TCP/IP. However other applications can change the TCP/IP timer parameters, generally not a good idea. And other applications might close what they consider to be an idle connection. > Another way : I there a maximum number of reconnection allowed > during a connection ? A normal TCP/IP socket never tries to reconnect, your applications controls all that.
