created too many sockets, now need to close them. . .
I've been building a php socket server for a flash chat application on my linux server.
For completely embarrassing, and slightly irrelevant, reasons, I ended up setting up quite a few socket servers, each using a different port, before I finally got one to work.
Now I'm left with a bunch of open, unnecessary sockets/ports which I'd like to close permanently.
I'm worried that these open sockets/ports represent a security threat, so I'd really appreciate any advice on how to close them. I would really really really appreciate it.
Thank you so much in advance.
