Call this member function to associate a local address with the socket.
BOOL Bind( UINT nSocketPort, LPCTSTR lpszSocketAddress = NULL ); BOOL Bind ( const SOCKADDR* lpSockAddr, int nSockAddrLen );
Nonzero if the function is successful; otherwise 0, and a specific error code can be retrieved by calling GetLastError. The following errors apply to this member function:
WSANOTINITIALISED A successful AfxSocketInit must occur before using this API.
WSAENETDOWN The Windows Sockets implementation detected that the network subsystem failed.
WSAEADDRINUSE The specified address is already in use. (See the SO_REUSEADDR socket option under SetSockOpt.)
WSAEFAULT The nSockAddrLen argument is too small (less than the size of a SOCKADDR structure).
WSAEINPROGRESS A blocking Windows Sockets call is in progress.
WSAEAFNOSUPPORT The specified address family is not supported by this port.
WSAEINVAL The socket is already bound to an address.
WSAENOBUFS Not enough buffers available, too many connections.
WSAENOTSOCK The descriptor is not a socket.
This routine is used on an unconnected datagram or stream socket, before subsequent Connect or Listen calls. Before it can accept connection requests, a listening server socket must select a port number and make it known to Windows Sockets by calling Bind. Bind establishes the local association (host address/port number) of the socket by assigning a local name to an unnamed socket.
