What do you mean by "detaching" and "attaching" ? AFAIK, socket handles are integer values, given out upon "socket()" calls, and returned when the specific socket is closed and shutdown.

Are you saying that you'd want to "rename" a socket ?

I'm still not sure what you want to do, could you elaborate a little bit more ?

Is it a question of communicating a socket handle to another thread ?

If that's the case, your question really is about inter process communication.

I think, at this moment, I'm not able to help you further. Perhaps you could take a look at the MFC source code for Attach() and Detach().

Hmm, guy73, I did not resolve your problem, therefor, I do not deserve your points. I don't know why my previous comment was posted as an answer, but I did not intended it to be an answer.

Please, if you wish, I'll place a question for 150 points in the C++ topic area. You could then answer my question and get your 150 points back. Just tell me if you want me to do that.

The question ofcourse, would be a mere comment, stating that I intend to refund your points.

If on the other hand, this really is what you needed... Please let me know how you perceive this.

Regards, Bob
