Which unit do your prefer for writing your TCP/UDP apps?

I want to find one that is not a visual component, simple, small, threaded and without bugs if possible. Any?

i don't know any.. i've just finished writing an asynchronous server/client class as a wrapper to winsock which isn't that hard to use.

i haven't found out how to make use of threads and winsock yet. i'll most likely make a similar server client wrapper using threads one of these days. i could try posting the code when i do?

In this component they use threads:

I would like to see your code if possible. 8)

a while ago i was told about hawknl:

i was told that it works very well but i haven't tested it yet.

But the source is written in C language.

And there is a Delphi interface unit for the HawkNL DLL. I've used it myself for a start to a game client/server library that I have never finished.

Not for Delphi but for Lazarus, I've recently released lNet

I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather have a game server running on Linux than Windows. :) Then again, I'm going everything cross-paltform and Linux nowadays anyhow...
