Re: RPC clnt_create() adress already in use

Hello Mark,

unfortunately i must correct my statement from Friday.
The program works, but only if the connections to the server are established in a loop inside the program.
If the program ends and you start it anew, a connection is not possible for a long time. you have to wait before you can establish a new connection.

Actually only our approaches in the original bindresvport() seem to work for all cases.
You have proposed to use the static variable usecount in bindresvport(). But how is the value of the variable handled if the program starts anew. Is it possible to get an used portnumber 
and run in EADDRINUSE?

Hi Mark,

it works. Maybe it's the best solution for the problem.

My testing shows that OP's original issue goes away when libtirpc is compiled to use Cygwin's bindresvport() directly rather than using its own version of that function.

Raimund, could you try this newest possible solution?  Before the first #include in bindresvport.c, add the line
     #ifndef __CYGWIN__
and at the end of the file, add the line
Then rebuild your libtirpc and your test programs linking against it, then run your tests.  If this proves to solve your original problem then I'll submit a patch of libtirpc to the Cygwin package maintainer.

Thank you,
