I am having some problems with the fork() system call under Windows 95/98 
and CygWin. I wrote a little TCP server under linux and tried to port it 
to Windows 98 and see the capabilities of CygWin. I don't know why, after 
the fork, the session gives an exception and hangs.

I can't find a reason, in fact the same .EXE run under Win NT 4.0 works 
really fine. Could anyone hel me out?

I have read the Faq and did not find an answer. Please excuseme if this 
has been asked before.
