I see. It is a probable result of the failure of inheritance of sockets
(for -Pxxx) on restarting the server process by (emulated) SIGHUP.

You need to specify SERVER=protocol[://server], the protocol with the
client, which is also the protocol with the server in most cases.
You need to specify any ports to be used to accept clients in
-P[host:]port option.

The SERVER parameter was extended to be conditional on the client-side
interface as SERVER=protocol://server:-:{host:port}, but the host:port
in it is just a condition to be tested.  It is not always so simple to
add this host:port in SERVER into -P, as in the following case
for example:

 |Or I've misunderstood the manual (most likely) ?

"-P" and "SERVER=" are oldest parameters of DeleGate since its begining
when it was born as a tiny proxy devoted for the Gopher protocol.
They have been left more than a decade keeping the backward compatibility,
thus the specification have become a little odd...

 |-t -vt +="e:/apps/dlg-conf.txt"

I can't understand why you specify "-t" option with DeleGate as a service.
"-t" is intended to be used with DeleGate running in foreground, with a
control tty, to redirect log outoput to the tty.  If used with a service,
running in background without tty, "-t" will disable log output.
