TCP Connection Limit ?

I have a UNIX program that loops while trying to make a socket connection. If the connect fails enough I run out of available TCP Connections. Here is a code fragment;
...
do {
  connected_I = -1;

    /*** OPEN SOCKET TO NT SERVER ***/
    fSocket = socket(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,0);
    if (fSocket == -1)
    {
      connected_I = 0;
    }

    /*** CONNECT TO SOCKET  ***/
    sin.sin_family = AF_INET;
    sin.sin_addr.s_addr = GetAddr(ip_addr);
    sin.sin_port = htons((u_short)(13011));

    if (connect(fSocket,
                (struct sockaddr FAR *) &sin,
                sizeof(sin))==-1)
    {
     connected_I = 0;
    }

    if (!connected_I)
    {
      shutdown(fSocket,2);
      close(fSocket);
      sleep(2);
    }

} while(!connected_I);
...
Can anyone see anything wrong with this?
Is there a table of some sort in UNIX that gets filled up and only released when my process terminates?
Any help anyone can offer would be great!

Try to insert these codes into your loop:

struct linger  socketLinger;  
.
        socketLinger.l_onoff = 1;
        socketLinger.l_linger = 0;
        if(setsockopt(fSocket,SOL_SOCKET,SO_LINGER,
                           &socketLinger,sizeof(struct linger)) == -1){
                perror("set sock opt error");
                return(-1);
        }                      
.

Then it should work.  If, it still do not work, then the problem must lay on your NT server. :)
For in my unix-unix network, communication, no problem occured!
