Sets the new connection handler for this socket.
This script is called for listening TCP Socket when new connections arrive so you can call Socket.AcceptNewConnection.

Be aware that FileMaker Server does not allow the plugin to operate if no script is running. So if you use sockets there, make sure a script is running or paused while you expect an answer coming in.

The script parameter is the ID of the socket. You can associate additional values with Socket.SetTag function to the socket and use them in the script triggered.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.
