E1258: Ggate UNIX/Linux, restart failed if listening on many ports

Product: Ggate
Platform: UNIX/Linux
Status: fixed in 6.6, fix available in 6.5
Last updated: 2013-03-01 10:49:11

If Ggate on UNIX/Linux was listening on more than three ports and there
were client sessions connected, then if Ggate was taken down restart would
fail, unless the client sessions were disconnected. Note that in general
Ggate listens on only one or two ports, for example the native Ggate port
and the TNVIP port. The internal test case that failed was a Ggate
listening on the native, Telnet, TNVIP and TN3270 ports. The problem was
caused by the client sessions that were forked inheriting all the
listening ports from Ggate, but only disconnecting the first three,
leaving the fourth listen open. When Ggate was restarted it was not able
to listen on the fourth port, because the client sessions were still
listening on it.
