Re: Listening sockets not always closing?

I'm running cygwin 1.5.18 on a number of versions of Windows, and I may
have found a problem closing sockets. I'm seeing this problem on Windows
2000 (no SP) and Windows 2000 SP1, but not on Windows 2000 SP2, SP3 or
SP4, and Windows XP and XP SP2 are also unaffected.

No offense, but doesn't this tell you what the solution is? Patch the out-dated machines.
They're open to countless security flaws by now.
All 2k boxen should be running SP4 by now - it's only been out a couple of years...

Beyond that, I can't say anything, but really, look into updating the boxen to sp4.

Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
