hello experts,
i created a simple chat server using socket in python.

my problem is that i want the client to try connect to the server until the connection is made..(when i set the timeout of the socket)

however, when the connection fail(timeout), i did another request but it done immediately.
here is the code:
from socket import *
s = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM)
connected = False
    while connected != True:
            s.connect(('localhost', 12345))
            connected = True
        except error:
            print "could not connected to server now.. Tries to connect again.."

#rest of the code...

is there any way to reset the timeout or i have to close that socket and open new one..

by the way, only when i set the timeout of the socket it doesn't work, if i don't set the timeout of the socket, it works..

thanks ahead..
