Managing a Client/Server Session

As host, the server is responsible for managing the course of the session. The details will depend on how the application is designed, but a session host's duties include, at a minimum:

When a player attempts to join a session, the host receives a DPN_MSGID_INDICATE_CONNECT message. To accept the player into the session, return S_OK. Returning any other value rejects the connection request. In either case, the player will receive a DPN_MSGID_CONNECT_COMPLETE message that contains your response.

The host can remove a player from the session by calling IDirectPlay8Server::DestroyClient.
