I wrote a simple server application and installed it on a linux machine
in Slovakia, running Mandrake 7.2 (2.2.18).
That machine loses tcp/ip packages, as it uses a Microwave connection.
So my server works all the time, and the tcp/ip connections are set to
TIME_WAIT, but after a couple of hours
my server application won't get any connections anymore and the netstat
shows a lot of CLOSE_WAITs that belong to the server.
I've installed the same server on two SuSE 7.1 (2.2.18) machines in
Austria, and the problem never occured.
So does anyone know how to avoid that CLOSE_WAITs, or at least how to
get rid of them?
Thanks in advance.
