    ICS registration

    @Bob4231, don't do that. I'm only interested in real picture postcard. If you really like ICS, maybe you'll take time to find a picture postcard in a nearby town. I think they are sold everywhere in the world. BTW: I already have more than 4000 postcards!
  2. Please be more specific about the error and where it occurs. You should run your program Under the debugger if the error is an exception.
  3. I think you are using a quite old ICS version because currently, all ICS as well as Midware files have their name prefixed by Overbyte. Be sure to install latest ICS first. And make sure old ICS is not available anymore (It can stay on disk but shall not be found using search path of any kind). You have to install ICS as explained in ICS documentation. Do not copy ICS files from ICS folder to Midware folder. Instead add to your Delphi global search path the source folder of ICS as well as the source\include. Only then you can build Midware. I'm not sure but you should probably also modify OverbyteIcsDefs.inc to make sure USE_SSL is not defined when building Midware which do not require SSL. I mean I'm not sure ICS distribution has USE_SSL symbol defined or not.

    Hang problem

    You should also monitor the session closed event. If your client stop reading data without disconnecting, the timeout can be very long. I suggest you simply abort (Not close) the connection for that client.

    ICS registration

    SSL is included in the standard ICS distribution completely free of charge as the whole ICS. The fee date back a long time, when there was a kind of sponsoring of ICS users needing SSL support. They had the product before it became free. As I said, now there is only a single ICS which include SSL support.
  6. You are right. I updated the zip file. Please download again and let me know if it works now. Thanks.

    Hang problem

    You can put data into the sendbuffer (That is call one of the send method). In OnDataSend event Handler, you set a flag to true and you reset it when you call send. Initialize the flag to true when the connection is established. Before calling one of the send methods, check the flag. The question is what will you do when the client doesn't receive fast enough ? Just throw away the data ? If you buffer it, then you'll have again a problem of too much data eating all available memory.
  8. See the announce message there: https://en.delphipraxis.net/topic/969-midware-new-update-available-for-latest-delphi-and-ics/
  9. Hello Midware fan, I have updated Midware for the latest Delphi 10.3.1 Rio compiler and for the latest ICS version. You can download from http://www.overbyte.eu/eng/products/midware You can find documentation at http://wiki.overbyte.eu/wiki/index.php/midware If you have any question, please start a new topic and be sure to add "[Midware]" in front of the title line. Have a nice day coding with Delphi
  10. Hello, As you are reading this message, you probably use ICS. Good! But have you taken time to register your ICS copy? ICS is freeware but to use it, you must register it. Registration is very simple: just mail a [real, paper] picture postcard to the author (me). You can find instructions in the readme8.txt file in ICS distribution. Thanks. PS: If you already sent your picture postcard, simply ignore this message. If you want to know if I received it, then you must tell me by email when you sent it, from which country and what the picture look like (I have several thousands postcards!).

    Remote Desktop with ICS

    I understood that your first test which succeeded was using a set of computers and a given network and that the second test use a different network - a company network- and probably other computers. IMO, with the second test, you have something blocking in the network managed by the company. The routs between the two computers may be complex inside a company, with routers, bridges, WAN, firewall and more. I suggest you get a simple Ethernet switch and connect the two computers under test directly on that switch or directly connect the two computers at each end of a single cable (a cross cable if the Ethernet cards are not able to sense I/O). Then verify that the software works as expected. If this succeed, it means everything is OK with the two computers and the software. Be sure that the two computers have their IP address in the same range (Use IPConfig to check that). Then connect the two computers on the company network and test if the software still work. If it doesn't then something in the company network is blocking the traffic you want to create (This is frequent in a company network where security is a concern). If it doesn't work, ask the system administrator. Note that the problem is even more complex if the two computers are separated by a router. All those problems are NOT related to ICS. They are just normal behaviour of a LAN/WAN based on IP protocol family.

    Thanks for feedback;

    Remote Desktop with ICS

    Check the firewall rules on each local computer, and check the firewall in the company infrastructure. Ask the system administrator to open the port you are using and to allow the application and routing of the traffic.
  14. Delphi 7 is too old. Using the current version available from my website. The new - unpublished yet - version is for recent Delphi compiler. Or upgrade your Delphi to the latest version (Delphi 10.3.1 Rio) you'll have tremendous enhancements compared to Delphi 7.

    You should run your application under the debugger which will show where the exception occurs. This is what is needed to understand what happen.
