Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm getting this error message when trying to launch two different applications to access a server online ...."""Can not Create Socket:10048 Address already in use""" . They say Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/IP address/port) is normally permitted. This error occurs if a program attempts to bind a socket to an IP address/port that has already been used for an existing socket, or A socket that wasn't closed properly, or one that is still in the process of closing. For server programs that need to bind multiple sockets to the same port number, consider using setsockopt(SO_REUSEADDR). Client programs usually need not call bind at all - connect will choose an unused port automatically. So, if there is an alternative to run something called SO_REUSEADDR HOW CAN YOU DO THAT FROM WITHIN WINDOWS 2000.Advice ,Help, Rescue Please..................... THE HEALTHY MONK
