It is an old code. But it is very similar to BUG 1694. In my case, the
client was not a VB program, but the apache module mod_lisp. This module
open socket connection to another server to pass HTTP parameters from Apache
to another server (A Freepascal Program in my case :-) ).
I have done it in LISP and VB without any problem. I have tried with
FreePascal but fail to do it :-(

    If someone have sothing like this I would be pleased too. I have already
tried to do something like this and fall. The client connect to the server,
send the first packet, close the connection, reopen another connection, and
send another packet. At this point the server only receive garbage :-(

  Do you have some code and a log?

  I am surprised, though that you close the connection. Surely, for the
duration of the conversation, you should hold the connection open - if you
are using TCP, that is. With UDP you would expect one packet per
conversation and it shouldn't matter if you close the connection (in fact
you don't have a connection end to end, only a local connection).

  Actually, maybe that is your problem (though the code would be needed to
know). With UDP you only send one packet and it is a connection less
conversation - it is up to the higher levels to establish a re-try or other
packet loss mechanism.

  It would be good to hear from somebody who has had both a TCP and a UDP
protocol working.
