    Question Need help with winsock2

    i am doing a server/client program with winsock2. once a client starts, it will connect to server and send some info. after server got these info,the connection will be closed,and the server will waiting for another client.

    now i wanna make sure that, once the server-socket accept a connection,this connection won't last more than 10 seconds. if one connection lasts more than 10 seconds,then the server-socket should close the connection automatically. is there anyway to set that time limit? any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.......

    you can set read and write timeouts, but if you want to limit the connection time to 10 seconds, you will need to do something like spawn a separate thread for each connection, have it sleep 10 seconds and then close the socket if it hasn't been closed yet.
