    Help on Socket Programmin


      Hi, Experts on Flash Builder,


      I need to build an FTP client program in AIR, I used Socket connection to the server, but after I sent out File in pieces to the server, for example, 8k of binary formated data, how do I know if the data was received by the server? It seems after client socket send out the data, even though I saw the server responded with an ACK packet (with Wireshark though), but the Flash's ProgressEvent.SOCKET_DATA is never triggered. And I don't have the ACK singal, so what I have to do is just wait for another second or so to send the next packet. But this will make the connection very very slow and not reliable since the speed is defined like 8k/sec, if the network speed is very fast, this is definitely a drawback of the client program.


      So my question is : is there any way to get the server's receiving ACK by some flag or event in Flash builder's Socket class after I send out the data? I guess ProgressEvent.SOCKET_DATA event is not triggered by ACK packet.


      Thanks a lot.
