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