Hi Rolf,
[tcpsocketserver] is an abstraction. If you open it you can see that 
[tcpserver] is inside, so you could edit it to add the other outlet.
As to why it behaves differently from [tcpserver] I don't know. There 
are two versions of [tcpserver], one in mrpeach and the other in iemnet. 
Maybe try a different one?
