Disconnect not being detected

I physically disconnect my machine but disconnected events aren't firing.

This is because both winsock and RAS take time to resolve the connection. IPWorks operates above the winsock layer. Unfortunately, this means the control won't know the connection status until winsock, or RAS depending on the control you are using, does.

Note that this trouble only occurs when a connection is rudely interrupted - such as physically unplugging an Ethernet or modem cord. Also note that if you attempt to USE the connection, that will force winsock or RAS to see that the connection has been terminated.
