[REBOL] Shortage of network connections

From: sqlab::gmx::net at: 15-Mar-2002 13:21

Hello I am using Rebol since a few years for transferring messages between pcs and not so common systems, where i wrote the servers on the non-pc. Just since short time i use it too for transferring message via Tcp/Ip between pcs. And there I observe connection errors in more than 10% of every try. Of course I handle that and try it again. But i can see a whole stack of orphaned socket connections and I am therefore worried that I will get a buffer or socket shortage or similar problems sooner or later. Has anyone seen the same effect and what can you do under Windows (NT, 2000 a.s.o.), to overcome the problem? Should I use another open/mode, but open/binary with Rebol, or are there some tweaks forcing Windows to do a housekeeping on socket connections in CLOSE/WAIT state? TIA AR
