Hello Meir,

To get wsi pointer of each client connection request , you could return context->pt->fds->fd from a method that returns a SOCKET id .My answer is completely windows-specific and have no idea about socket.io. But if your requirement is to get socket ids of each web client connection requests and map those at the server end for using those socket ids to send reply messages to the connected clients, this method should work. Mine works properly.The solution is for libwebsockets master version.

Thanks and regards,
