2.1.3. Connection control

Table 2.3 shows the TAPOp functions that manipulate server connections. An RPC connection must be open to make a TAPOp connection, so the columns RPC connection control and TAPOp connection control are not alternatives.

The function TAPOp_PingServer is automatically called in a separate thread by the Windows support code, so your Windows application does not have to call this.
