Connection refused problem
I am trying to connect a port which has been listenning. I checked with netstat -tan and saw
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
There is no firewall. My code is a standart code :

addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
addr.sin_addr.s_addr = inet_addr("");
addr.sin_port = htons(2000);

if ((sockfd = socket(PF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,IPPROTO_TCP)) <0)
printf("ERROR opening socket\n");
strcpy(buffer,"hello world\r\n");
if (connect(sockfd,(struct sockaddr *)&addr,sizeof(addr)) < 0)
printf("con failed %s",strerror(errno));

It gives the error "Connection Refused".
I looked at the wireshark log and saw that it is trying to connect any other port that is not been listenning. I can connect to the port with telnet.
What is wrong with this code?

If you cannot connect with a known-good client (I prefer netcat, 'nc' for testing such cases), it may be that the server is not accepting connections from localhost. What is the nature of the server?

I tried your code with nc listening as a server on port 2000, and it connected was was able to write to the server.

I found out that it is endian problem htons,htonl functions don't work. I tried manually and it works. The server accepts connections from localhost becaues there is any other clients connecting that way.
But i could not find out why htons/htonl functions don't work.
