1 * HRFlHCkDK-TCP socket: "accept" failed: Invalid argument

I test a TCP server sample code in C; and have
the error message receved from the "accept" call:

in the code, I declared:

......
struct sockaddr_in fsin;
        char *service = "daytime";
        int msock, ssock;
        int alen = sizeof(struct sockaddr);
......

msock = passivetcp(service, QLEN); /*call another function to create the
TCP socket, QLEN = 5;*/

printf("msock: %d\n", msock);
...
ssock = accept(msock, (struct sockaddr *)&fsin, &alen);
if (ssock < 0 ) {
        printf("errno: %d\n", errno);
        errexit("accept failed: %s\n", sys_errlist[errno]);}
...

after compiling, I run the code, yet received the following
errors:

[44]% tcpdaytimed&
[1] 3379
[45]% The port is: 8013
msock: 3
errno: 22
accept failed: Invalid argument

"tcpdaytimed" is the name of the executable.
as you can see the TCP socket may have been created successfully,
since "msock" is "3"; the TCP socket uses the no. 8013 port;
yet, the code generates the no. "22" error - "Invalid argument"!!!

Hope any can advice me on how to get around this problem.

Thanks,

Shicheng

PS: the code runs on Unix SunOS 5.6 system.
