freeing port - winsock


J

Julien Ghaye

Hi everyone,

Actually, I'm coding some kind of a http client.

Here is my problem. When I create and destroy many sockets (one after
another) without specifying the local port to bind, It seems that this
local port is not free after using the function closesocket().

So, How can I free it ?

Here is a small programm that I code quickly. It's goal is to create a
socket, connect to a remote server on port 80, close the socket and to
loop on these actions.
It displays the local port in use.
You'll see that after having used the default range 1024-5000, you get a
10048 error (adresse in use)

Any ideas ?

Thanks all,
Julien
