    Exclamation TIME_WAIT problem

    Hi,

    I'm using sockets for communication. Everything works fine but when i use netstat on server,
    There are many connections with "TIME_WAIT" state and are increasing! I shutdown and close the sockets on both client and server, so what's wrong?
    Client is windows and server is linux.
    Any idea?

    Thanks b4

    you also posted the least amount of information, so no one will try to help if you post something like: I have a problem with windows, it crashes when I run Microsoft word, help me!


    yeah... Ok.. Will do

    I'm not exactly sure I know what you mean by that, but you seem unhappy with his response.
    He, in fact, posted exactly the information you needed. The information the link points to, and even the text of the link!
    He could have just said JFGI, try being a little more grateful...

    I should have been more clear:I was responding to hosseinyounesi because he gave the smallest about of information. It tires me when people ask for help and give so little information it makes the helping part difficult.

    Thats all!

    Nothing.

    Sometimes, after I turn off my car, the radiator fan continues spinning for a few minutes. Nothing wrong with that either. It's the way it's meant to work.

    (The reason is actually not very interesting. When you close a socket, it is possible that not all data has been completely transmitted or received at the other end yet. Remember that the network is not perfect and packets can be lost. To ensure that the last few pieces of data really get there, the socket hangs around in the OS for a little while to finish up any remaining loose ends)
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Ahh. I see, sorry about that.
