port increments despite having been previously closed??
In one windows application I am developing I am periodically:
opening a socket with socket()
then I call connect (to server IP and port)
then i exchange some data with send/recv
then I close the socket with
appearantly all calls are performed correctly
but what happens is that at every successive connect I am assigned a different (increasing by one) port
Is that normal or do I have to suspect that the previous port was not set free correctly by shutdown+close?
