Hi Hirosh,

Most likely cause is writing to a pipe which has no reader ... this may be because of the fact that you have not yet programmed a thread/process to read from the pipe or that pipe reader might have exited ...

one work around is to fragment data before sending and assemble it at client site

post the code if possible

The kernel will send the SIGPIPE signal when the remote end closes or shuts down the socket and you try to send/write. The default signal handler will terminate your program.

One solution is to ignore the signal using 'signal(SIGPIPE, SIG_IGN)' somewhere at the start of your program. You will get an EPIPE error return when send/write fails due to a broken pipe.

Another less portable solution is to pass the MSG_NOSIGNAL flag to send(). This has the same effect.
