TIdRawBase Class

Ancestor class for Raw socket clients.

TIdRawBase = class(TIdComponent);

TIdRawBase is a TIdComponent descendant that implements the ancestor for components which use raw socket formats. TIdRawBase allows the programmer to code for protocols that are not supported by the standard stack. 

Depending on the underlying operating system and on the security privilege of the user, it might also allow the programmer to build the IP header (currently, this is only supported by Windows 2000). 

Microsoft Windows Socket 2 Update  

For Windows98, no updates are required because that included Winsock 2. 

For WindowsNT, you need administrative rights and Service Pack 3.
