    few questions in Network Programming

    hey everyone,

    recently i've started learning about sockets and i have some questions:

    - what does the function Socket.Bind(EndPoint) do?

    - how can i change my clients Port? it seems to be random...

    - can i use two sockets on the same application? two sockets on the same port (server side)?

    - why cant i bind my server's socket to a diffrent port? in order to do so i closed the socket created a new one and used the bind function on it with the new port...

    thanks in advance,

    Typically you call bind in order to set the IP, port etc etc of the client, so you can use the Socket.Listen method to listen from the connection. EndPoint is the object that has all the information.

    I don't know more details. Are you setting the port/IP somehow?
