newbie question on bind ?

Post by kamra » Wed, 03 Apr 2002 21:34:56


I am very new to this, please have patience
I am writing a small test program (serv/client) where the server
uses bind on a socket.
My problem is; when the data stream between the two programs
(serv/cli) are interrupted by say a kill signal or something else
causes the programs to exit, the port on the server side is
busy for a few minutes meaning no connection is accepted
until this is resolved. How can I avoid this or is there a configuration
file where I can set or specify the duration for this ?

Thanks in advance

Since you're new, maybe you should start by reading the Sockets FAQ.  It
answers your question.

1. Newbie question about "Listen" and "Bind address"

I finally broke down and built a linux box (Red Hat 6.0) and have Apache
1.3.9 installed. I can't set the "listen" to just the port because of other
servers on the intranet using port 80 as well and I don't want to have to
have everyone type in the port to get the info they need, ie,
everytime. Is it possible to list in the "listen" section a block of IP
addresses such as: listen ? This would simplify life!
Or is it better in this instance to use "bind address" with the main IP and
a bunch of aliases?
