I am testing the IDTCPServer and IdTCPClient as shown in Chapter 21 : Using
Internet Direct.
It is Indy 9.0.11.

When testing Server program  with Telnet 9999

it works fine, giving me the squared value correctly.

When trying to access Server with IdTcpClient :

BoundIP :
Boundport : 9999 ( same value is set on server port  )
Host : MyMachineRunningIdTcpServerName

I get the "EIdCouldNotBindSocket"

What went wrong ?

Please help.
