Re: bind_socket uses SO_REUSEADDR

>Are you mistaking it with SO_REUSEPORT ?
Yes and no. I'm more a Windows developer and there is no SO_REUSEPORT on
Windows but SO_REUSEADDR behaves like setting SO_REUSEPORT and SO_REUSEADDR
on a socket in BSD (
Also here is the quote from MSDN about using SO_REUSEADDR (
"The *SO_REUSEADDR* socket option allows a socket to forcibly bind to a
port in use by another socket. The second socket calls *setsockopt*
 with the *optname* parameter set to *SO_REUSEADDR* and the *optval* parameter
set to a boolean value of *TRUE* before calling *bind*
 on the same port as the original socket. Once the second socket has
successfully bound, the behavior for all sockets bound to that port is
indeterminate. For example, if all of the sockets on the same port provide
TCP service, any incoming TCP connection requests over the port cannot be
guaranteed to be handled by the correct socket — the behavior is
non-deterministic. A malicious program can use *SO_REUSEADDR* to forcibly
bind sockets already in use for standard network protocol services in order
to deny access to those service. No special privileges are required to use
this option."
