I am using Redhat Linux 5.2 with Kernal 2.0.36
I wrote a application using BSD sockets.
The type of the socket is SOCK_STREAM.
The address family is AF_INET
When I try to bind it gives me the error message
"Cannot assign the requested address"
But if the same process runs as a super user
then it does bind to the address.
But the client cannot still connect to the server
. The client basically times out .
If anybody cld help me in this regard
Also, I wld like to know if there is a tool
or a command or a configuration file entry
using which I can restrict/ permit network access
