I am runnig FlexNet license manager on FreeBSD (6.4), this is alinux
application, but it is running smoothly.

The problem occurs sometime at stop time, it will not stop cleanly and
leave a connection in CLOSE_WAIT state. As a result, the ports are not
freed and the license managerserver cannot restart.

Is there a simple way to force reset the hanging connection?

Best regards,
