I have a server sending data on request to several hundreds of clients.
server and client are written in c++, communication is a class I've written and uses non-blocking sockets with winsock 2.
my question is:
What is the effect on my users if I use SO_LINGER with a timeout of 0, instead of SO_DONTLINGER ?
how will it affect reconnection to the server ?
