you need to use setsockopt() to set the SO_REUSEADDR option. that way the socket won't stay bound to a port after your program has terminated. Unix holds onto them by default just in case your program launches in the near future. there's a delay that you remove by setting SO_REUSEADDR. :)

use the mighty Google to find out more.. i'm too tired to launch into a tutorial. :P

good luck..
