Hi Folks :)
I am trying to write a simple a server process which follows this sequence...
close( descriptor from accept() )
close( descriptor from socket() )
But I am getting error 99 (Cannot assign requested address) from bind().
I am trying to bind the socket on 127.0.0.1:3333
(This works on Linux though)
Are there any special/extra things I need to do in /etc or elsewhere to make
this program run on FreeBSD ?
I am running FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE
Any help/pointers from you folks would be great :)
Thanks in advance :)
