Dear all,

I have client server application.
If network cable is unplugged at the client PC, the server is not able to
detect the communication breakage.
I have given
gen_tcp:listen(Port,[{active,false},{packet,0},{keepalive,true}])  in the
If any option is available to detect it at the server end, it will be very
useful to me.
Thanks in advance!
with regards,
