Hi
 here is an explanation of the problem I am having.
The scenario can be duplicated as follows:

- I have a Main class that starts up a Thread that opens a server socket. The code for the listener thread is as follows:-

/*
 * ListenerThread.java
 *
 *  */

package com.applicationjunction.messenger;
import javax.microedition.io.*;
/**
 *
 * @author  Administrator
 */
public class ListenerThread extends Thread {
 
    private boolean running = false;
    private final Main main;
    //private WorkThread workThread;
 
    /** Creates a new instance of ListenerThread */
    public ListenerThread(Main main) {
        super();
        this.main = main;
    }
 
    public synchronized void start() {
        running = true;
        super.start();
    }
 
    public synchronized void kill() {
        running = false;
    }
 
    public void run() {
        try {
            StreamConnectionNotifier notifier = null;
            StreamConnection connection = null;
            java.io.InputStream is = null;
            java.io.OutputStream os = null;
         
            notifier = (StreamConnectionNotifier) Connector.open("serversocket://:9000",Connector.READ_WRITE,false);
            System.out.println("Waiting for connections on port 9000");
            while (running) {
                // wait for a incoming connection
                connection = notifier.acceptAndOpen();

                System.out.println("Connection received from " + connection.toString());
                os = connection.openOutputStream();
                is = connection.openInputStream();
                System.out.println("Connected to " + connection.toString());
                System.out.println("Sending \"OK\"...");
                // ready to read and write to the stream...
                os.write("ok".getBytes());
                os.flush();
                System.out.println("Message sent.");
                os.close();
                is.close();
                connection.close();
                connection = null;
            }
         
        }   catch (Exception err) {
            System.out.println("Something went wrong with the Listener Thread.");
            err.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}

This causes the thread to listen for connections on port 9000. This works fine.

- The Main class then opens a socket connection to another module listening on port 9000. The code is as follows:-

        StreamConnection test1 = null;
        InputStream test1in = null;
        OutputStream test1out = null;
        try {
            test1 = (StreamConnection) Connector.open("socket://192.168.0.4:9000",Connector.READ_WRITE,false);
            test1in = test1.openInputStream();
            test1out = test1.openOutputStream();
           
            System.out.println((char) test1in.read());
            System.out.println((char) test1in.read());
           
            test1in.close();
            test1out.close();
            test1.close();
            test1 = null;
        } catch (IOException ioe) {
            System.err.println("Could not receive from other box");
        }

At this point the box is listening for incomming connections and trying to make an outgoing connection to a separate box.
After the socket connection is made, the server socket connection dies with the following stackTrace printout.

java.io.IOException
        at com.sun.cldc.io.j2me.serversocket.Protocol.acceptAndOpen(+4)
        at com.applicationjunction.messenger.ListenerThread.run(+37)

That is all I can give you to replicate the problem. All this is happening over a GPRS connection using the Siemens TC45 device.
I hope you can help me out.

First Make the Socket Connect and Then and then Listen for incoming connections
