[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 4/4] util: do not set SO_REUSEADDR on Windows

From: Sebastian Ottlik
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC 4/4] util: do not set SO_REUSEADDR on Windows
Date: Wed, 4 Sep 2013 16:22:20 +0200

If a socket is closed it may remain in TIME_WAIT state for some time. On most
operating systems the local port of the connection or socket may not be reeused
while in this state unless SO_REUSEADDR was set on the socket. On windows on the
other hand the default behaviour is to allow reuse (i.e. identical to
SO_REUSEADDR on other operating systems) and setting SO_REUSEADDR on a socket
allows it to be bound to a endpoint even if the endpoint is already used by
another socket independently of the other sockets state. This may result in
undefined behaviour. Fix this issue by no setting SO_REUSEADDR on windows.
