SO_LINGER setting

The solinger parameter sets the delay, in seconds, that the Gateway waits while data is being transmitted before closing a socket, after a call has been received to close the socket.

Set the value in the range 0 - 65,536 to specify the delay period in seconds. If a value greater than zero is specified and data is being transmitted when a call to close the socket is received, the Gateway waits until the data is transmitted or until the time specified before closing the socket. If a value is not specified or is set to zero, the socket is closed immediately, terminating the data transmission. However, the data transmission can be successful because TCP/IP repeats the send request for a specified period of time.

This parameter is in the TCP protocol parameters subsection of the GATEWAY section of the configuration file.

Default value
If this parameter is not specified, the default value is 0.
