[ECOS] Problem Establishing socket Connection

You are right... I should have made the code stub.

It turns out that the FreeBSD stack requires you to fill out the sa_len field of the server address. Your code sample runs with this modification. 

I will go back to my code and see if that fixes my problem....

It always a good idea to post a complete (none)working test
case. Something we can just compile and run. It saves us time messing
turning your code fragment into something useful.

I've attached what i used to test this.

I get another error. EINVAL. I didn't track it down, but these seems
much more reasonable to me than EAFNOSUPPORT.

Please try to reproduce your problem either using my code, or build a
complete test case which demonstrates the problem.
