TCP socket question on AIX

TCP socket question on AIX

Post by S.Velcha » Sun, 21 Mar 1993 07:52:00


I have a TCP port assigned to a server on the RS6000 and the client program
runs on a real-time platform. The real-time platform is very unstable.
Whenever my client crashes, the port on the RS6000 side times out after a
very long time.
IS there any easy way to reset the TCP port without shutting down the system?
Is there any way to set the FIN_WAIT_1 and FIN_WAIT_2 values?

Thanks for any information.

the following section in the AIX man pages:

  The O_NDELAY and O_NONBLOCK flags affect only operations against
  file descriptors derived from the same open subroutine.  In BSD,
  these operations apply to  all file descriptors that refer to the

I don't know if this is your problem, but it might be worth checking...

  That's shouldn't be neccessary, I've got my applications to work with
asynch i/o...
