Hi

I am using Indy 9.0.14 and Delphi 7.

My computer is a

        AMD Athlon XP 3200+
        1 GIG of RAM
        Windows 2000 SP4

I have 230 servers that I need to connect to. Each server generates
approximately 26 packets a second, each packet being 1015 bytes in size. The
servers are on a dedicated network with the only traffic being that
generated by the 230 servers.

My questions are:

Can I use Indy, on a single computer, to connect to these 230 servers and
reliably recieve all packets without overloading the receiving computer?

Should I use multiple threads? Single thread? What priority?

Blocking? or non Blocking?

Are their some code samples/documents that may help me on how I might
approach this?

Thank-you

Bob
