HSM connection

Hi,

I am writing a program to send commands to a HSM. This is done using sockets. I have a problem that the socket does not seem to disconnect imediately after calling the close method on the socket. It seems to wait for a timeout before disconnecting, is there anyway that I can force the connection to be dropped straight away as we only have a limited number of HSM connections.

Thanks,

Darren.
