Question Socket and Select() problems

Well this is the situation i am having with the select() command
At the moment i have written a daemon and it seems to accept the first connection and then from that point on it refuses to proccess any more.

I have used netstat and it says the connection is established,
I have placed a printf line after the accept command in the code
and nothing is showing..

I have a feeling it has something to do with the socket id its been given, and that is 0.

THis problem is driving me nuts i have used the same code in the other server applications without fault..

any pointers as to what i may of done or could be going wrong.

You definitely need to give the accept() call the right socket fd. otherwise nothing will happen. Without a sniplet of your code your trying to get to work, its difficult to give you a hint on what to do.
Anyway, you'll find a great tutorial for IPv4 socket programming here:

It would help if you could show the relevant code snippet.
