[REBOL] Re: Maximum number of listening ports
From: lmeyer:bltech:za at: 25-Feb-2010 9:03
Thanks for the feedback up to now.
I have know included an if statement to close the port if the COPY of the
port (connstatus) returns NONE (thanks Gabrielle).
I also included an if statement to insert the inputmulticast to the port if
the COPY of the port (connstatus) does not equal NONE.
Great, it works and ports are being closed now + memory no longer increases
as ports are removed from the list, but I have picked up an issue. If the
remote client hogs the port (in my case the telnet session to tcp port
crashed), no other connections are possible from other tcp clients until
that problem connection is closed. Then only can the rest of the connections
connect to the tcp server again.
In the code below, I think I should have rather used "continue" in the if
connstatus equals NONE
block, instead of the next "if connstatus not equals
NONE". But when I use "continue" I get an error that says it has no value.
works, but I believe that would result in the remainder of the ports
in the ports list would not be forwarded the data for that loop cycle.
Any feedback on the "One problem port stops all" issue perhaps?
