Problems with TCP Listener?

» close window

The Question is:

I'm writing a TCP based portlistener. I'm using the example
I've notices a problem that the program still is waiting for an incoming
 TCP-packet but NOT on the define port. After some minutes the program has lost
 it is original connection.
Is there a max. time before I am losing my port and yes how can I adjust that
Thanks in advance

The Answer is :

  You will want to contact the support center directly, as additional
  details of the problem and the symptom(s) will be required -- this
  would appear to be a bug within your application code or within the
  example code, or an unhandled connection timeout.
  Details of the target application will also be useful and will likely
  be requested, as the choice of UDP or TCP, and of timeouts, are often
  entirely dependent on the particular application goals.
  inetd, for instance, can be used to start listeners in service of
  incoming connections.
