Default Text or File ??

Using the socket components how can I identify what has been sent... Either plain text or a file block?? Or should I just use 2 different ports? If I do use 2 different ports is it possible that information could arrive in a different order to what how it was sent??

Please help

Default RE: Text or File ??

IMHO it's impossible because even a part of an EXE file could look like plain text. So, if you can control what you send transmit a header before the data and put in this header everything you need to know about the data: eg. type, size, time, sequential number etc.
And yes, AFAIK it is possible that the order changes if you use 2 ports - timing problem.
