    what does "close wait" and "fin_wait2" means?

    http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/5...osewait0lw.jpg

    1. what does "close wait" means?
    2. what does "fin_wait2" means?

    i understand that these are socket status but
    - what do they mean? the socket is waiting for server? the socket is shutting down but waiting for certain event to happen before it's allowed to shutdown?
    - what situations causes them?
    - it seems that the socket is waiting for something, how can i stop the close wait/fin_wait2 and shutdown the socket? (gracefully or forcefully)

    it seems that sockets on "close wait" and "fin_wait2" on my program are the ones with problems

    please advise
