RXSocket Detect Disconnect?

I'm working on trying to tie the console to TCP to fake an rlogin connection. Using RXSocket.library, I did manage to get that part working but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to detect if the remote server disconnects (i.e. logoff, loss of internet, remote host goes offline, etc).
Any ideas?

does the server send a "request" packet to see if the line is still alive? If so, you can have
your program check periodically for that packet.

Or you can periodically send a packet that the server responds to. If no packet gets received after a certain amount of time then disconnect and reconnect. Have the program do that of course.
