I don't really follow what you're asking here ... since this discussion
doesn't seem to match the original query.

If you overrode the connect() method, that's how you'd call the parent
class's one. Think Java super.connect() vs this.connect() (umm, i think
that's java, it's been a while). And yes, you should always do this at
the start of your connect method.

SendTo will only ever be called on a connected transport. If it isn't,
then you must return a 'not connected' exception, yes. See
So yeah, connect will be called separately.
