Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-6360) [classlib][luni]SocketTest and UnixSocketTest failed on AIX, because AIX do NOT support connect to port 0

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6360?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12768687#action_12768687

Oliver Deakin commented on HARMONY-6360:

Hi Ray - thanks for the new patch. That looks better, but one thing still puzzles me. How
can the ServerSocket get a free port when it is passed 0 but Socket cannot?

> SocketTest failed on AIX at the statement "Socket s = new Socket("", 0, false);"
which create a socket in local and connect to IP address and port specified (, which
in turn actually connect to (machineIP:0) in PlainSocketImpl.java
> However AIX and some other Unix platform do NOT support connect to port 0.
> If you try to connect to your mahchine with port 0 in C program will get EADDRNOTAVAIL
error on AIX and zos but it works well on Linux.
