|Server network address||Server network address to which the socket client will be connected. The address can be entered by both IP address (e.g. 192.168.0.15) or by name (e.g. server11). If the client wants to be connected to the server that runs on the same (local) computer, then it is advisable to enter the universal local host address: 127.0.0.1. |

|Timeout [ms]||Time (in ms) that the client is waiting for the response (for the input). If the data are not accepted in this time interval, the transfer will be declared as faulty.|
|Transfer mode||Selection from the following options (for details see Data transfer in network over Sockets):|
According to server - At first the client finds out parameters of the group (port and protocol type) on the server side by the system message and then it uses these parameters for the data transfer of this socket group.
Unlimited data length (TCP) - The client will communicate by the TCP protocol, the data can be of any size. The group must be set up on the server side the same way.
Limited data length (UDP) - The client will communicate by the UDP protocol, the data size should be less than 480 bytes. The group must be set up on the server side the same way.
