Hello! I want to control the starting of certain services on my Linux VPS with a home made porttrigger. If the right password is received the according programm for that port is started. ( I have my reasons to do it this way and not with firewall setting or encryted passwords. If you want to know ask ;-) ) This is what i have come up with so far: #!/usr/bin/env ruby require "socket" server = TCPServer.new('0.0.0.0', 8089) while (session = server.accept) if (ret=session.gets.chomp) =~ /password/ puts `./sc_serv0` end session.close end It kinda works, but the problem is that the ruby isnt freeing the port. So programms that cant share ports give me: error opening source socket! FATAL ERROR! Some other process is using this port! How do i close the TCPServer after the right password is received? ( In the final version i want to stop the started programm after a certain amount of of time and start the trigger again ( and it prolly needs to be threaded. )) But for now i just want this to work. server.shutdown wont work after the right pw is received. Any ideas? Thanks!
