Network.Transport.TCP may reject incoming connection request

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: None

      Description

      Suppose A and B are connected, but the connection breaks. When A realizes this immediately and sends a new (heavyweight) connection request to B, then it /might/ happen that B has not yet realized that the current connection has broken and will therefore reject the incoming request from A as invalid.

      This is low priority because

      • the window of opportunity for the problem to occur is small, especially because in the case of a true network failure it will take some time before a new connection can be established
      • even if the problem does arise, A can simply try to connect again (A might have to that anyway, to find out if the network problem has been resolved).
