Default Re: several TCP sockets

generally you can't have two processes listening on the same port.

but you can have one process listening on a port that spawns multiple sockets. e.g. you generally start a process with only a few sockets, and spawn more sockets as the connection count goes up. after clients have finished talking to the server process you kill the sockets to keep resource use down.

I assume that you're writing some software? -if you're bothered about the socket connections
