I have a server that it very simple. I declare a socket and I get a

on the client side I noticed sometimes corrupted data which means the

My understanding is that the descriptor is a unique identifier that i

Can anyone see what is going wrong here? The code is too big so I`ll
just maybe give a snapshot.

sizeof (socketAddress)

What are all of the C style casts for? You should replace them with
whatever C++ casts are appropriate for the casts you're using.

I had a problem where I was rather stupidly using a C cast interfacing
with a legacy library and had put it at the wrong level of a
structure. This was causing the program to write over the wrong buffer
causing all sorts of weird behaviour (I was actually seeing the this
pointer change when calling between methods on the same object). It
took me days to track it down because the cast always looked right. It
was only changing to C++ casts that let the compiler spot my stupid
