Sinking Data


Setting this property to 1- YES causes the socket to automatically discard all incoming data without passing it to your application. The on_sock_data_arrival event will not be generated, reading sock.rxlen will always return zero, and so on. No data will be reaching its destination even in case of buffer redirection . Inband commands , however, will still be extracted from the incoming data stream and processed. Sock.connectiontout and sock.toutcounter will work correctly as well.
