I have a database connection to MySQL and it has a 'Before Connect' event. I would like to bring up the secure connection and the forwarded port 3306 at this time but although waiting for OnAuthenticated to complete works 50% of the time, sometimes it is marginally too soon and the connection fails. Now I suppose I could use a timer, or perhaps sleep the main thread (but I think this might cause problems), but none of this seems elegant enough.

Is there a safe way to determine whether a forwarded port is ready to accept connections?

I'm not sure if I understood your problem correctly. TElLocalPortForwarding and TElRemotePortForwarding components fire OnOpen event when they are ready to accept new connections.

I have not found this to be entirely true. Perhaps it's a windows problem but I can't get that to work reliably either. Sometimes it's just a a little bit too soon and a connection made in the OnOpen event seems to fail. Whereas if I put two buttons on a page, bring up the ssh connection first and make my connection second I never have a problem.

Now I see. We will review the code and try to find a solution for the problem. Thank you for pointing us at this.
