Aahh... took me a while before I realized Accept has 5 different forms 
(defined in the unit sockets where the accept function is depricated)

Is Sockets the only unit you use or do you use more units ?

Do you use ansistrings ? (see {$H+} in the top of your code). Ifso, 
declare FromName as ShortString
