I would like to is there a way to "reset" a active socket during data transfer without disconnecting it from the server or client? For example, given a socket is connected to www.google.com and is processing incoming data. Now the program wants to stop all data transfer at a given moment without disconnecting from Google.
One reason is time and speed. Stopping data tranfer via disconnection takes time because the program has to then reconnect to the server or client.
