[REBOL] ports, buffering and general weirdness
From: chris::langreiter::com at: 21-Jun-2002 22:42
Is there any information on how the REBOL ports buffering layer works?
I'm currently trying to track down weird problems I have with a
hipe-inspired REBOL server - "usually" it works very well, but when
there's a bit of other network traffic on the machine (Win2K), e.g. I
open a web site, client ports start to killed (none is received on
the client side - frankly I don't know if the client can't handle the
incoming data fast enough or if it's a different kind of problem).
Is this a symptom that's known to experienced server writers?
If you want to try it yourself, you can download the package from
Start the generic-server.r first and then client-run.r, in the
client-run.r console enter "evertest". You can start several clients
at once as well. I would be very happy to receive reports on the
behaviour ("port unexpectedly closed, retrying ..." is the evil
message to be on the lookout for ;-).
