Can two applications listen to the same port? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can two applications on the same machine bind to the same port and IP address and listen for incoming connections? The  socket option SO_REUSEADDR is set on the  listen socket before using bind().  But all the incoming socket connection requests is always directed to one of the applications, not both.
