Sorry I'm late replying - time zone differences can be a real nuisance
:-) It looks from later email that you've already figured out these
answers - but I'll answer them for the sake of completeness for anyone
reading the threads later.

Indeed - in your code you would do something like
set the itemDel to ":"

close socket theIPAddress
