VRf - Socket saga

Question asked by VRFuser on Dec 4, 1997
I am using sockets to communicate with a host computer with several
instruments attached to a GPIB bus.  The connection, GUIs, both client
and host side work OK but if the connection is broken, it seems the only
way to get the host to respond again is to restart VEE.  Including
"EXECUTE CLOSE" transactions either immediately after a READ or WRITE or
using an EXECUTE CLOSE if the connection is broken makes no difference.
The host needs to be able to recover in case the client accidentally
breaks the connection which could easily happen in this scenario.

I've hit a bit of a brick wall here so if anyone could help it would be
appreciated.

Thanks,
