- Subject: Socket Programming - accept() blocking
I am trying to learn about socket programming, so I am creating a simple web
server that receives connections and sends the requested file. I have a start
to the code, and this code works fine when built and ran on a true linux
machine. However, I have been having trouble getting it to work in Cygwin.
The error occurs in the following lines of code:
if ((s_curr = accept(s, (struct sockaddr *) &pin, &addrlen)) == -1)
The accept() command is not blocking, so as soon as I attempt to start the web
server, it immediately returns the ERROR message.
Like I said, this code works fine on a true linux machine, so I was wondering
if anybody had any suggestions as to why Cygwin is not blocking for this accept
