Thread: Why no port binding issues on other systems?

  1. Why no port binding issues on other systems?

    When we search for port got struck in LISTEN state in google, we find
    all the problems are of HP-UX. I haven't seen this problem on any other
    other Unix machine. Why don't HP-UX address this problem at all? All
    the replies I have seen in HP will say that correct the application ,
    such that all the sockets will close properly.

    What about porting applications? Does it mean , everybosy has to
    redesign just because they are supporting HP-UX!!!!

    This is the case where you are _certain_ that _all_ the processes
    which _might_ have had a reference to the LISTEN endpoint (socket)
    have terminated completely right?

    That being the case, the thing to do, apart from making sure you are
    on the latest transport patches for the OS release you are running, is
    to get a dump into the hands of the Response Center so they can
    investigate it as a bug.
