TIdReuseSocket Enumeration

Indicates how IP addresses and port numbers are reused for listener threads in TCP servers.

TIdReuseSocket = (
  rsOSDependent,
  rsTrue,
  rsFalse
);

TIdReuseSocket is an enumerated type that represents the manner in which socket reuse is supported in Indy TCP servers. TIdReuseSocket can contain one of the following values and associated meanings: 

 

Value 
Meaning 
rsOSDependent 
Reuse IP addersses and port numbers when the OS platform is Linux. 
rsTrue 
Always resuse IP addersses and port numbers. 
rsFalse 
Never resuse IP addersses and port numbers. 

 

TIdReuseSocket is the type used to represent the TIdTCPServer.ReuseSocket property, and indicates if IP addresses and port numbers can be reused for TIdListenerThread instances used by the server. 

A TIdReuseSocket value is used as an option for setting socket options for the protocol stack when allocating the listener thread(s) after a server becomes Active. 

The default behavior for servers in Indy is rsOSDependent.
