Hey dudes and dudesses,

Is SO_REUSEADDR only needed for a server. I have some software in client/server paradigm and I see at times, I get address in use error on the server. Wondering whether to add this on my listening socket.

thanks.

Read some books from Stevens. You might also consider looking for another (more programming related) forum.
