Subject Re: WWW Form Bug Report: "socket error, accept failed, can't kill server." on UnixWare

OK. We've never *really* gotten a straight answer to this one from Novell or
SCO, but beware that the TCP/IP layer may not be totally bug free. 2.1 isn't
a real alternative unless they've definitely fixed all the old bugs, *and*
all the new ones they introduced with it.

All that said, you can try this:

Use the NEED_LINGER compile flag.

Try a build with a 2.7.2 or better gcc. 2.6.x barfs on UWare 2.x.

These worked for us, but that was then.
We've given up on UnixWare at N2K, since the performance was so low.

I hope this helps.

And now, on a lighter note:
It's lucky you're going so slowly, because you're going in the wrong
