hello,i have a problem:
tcp4 0 0 TIME_WAIT
netstat -an | awk '{if($5 ~/11200/ && $6 ~/TIME_WAIT/) print $0}' | wc -l

sysctl net.inet.tcp.msl
net.inet.tcp.msl: 2500

msl will not recycle "TIME_WAIT" states when have lots of "TIME_WAIT",like64203
so server local port will Exhaust, if i open a connection it will report:
telnet 11211
telnet: connect to address Can't assign requested address
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host

what can i do? only reboot server?

system Environment: FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE #0
