Applies to:Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6.5, 6.51
Information in this document applies to any platform
On machines with several IP addresses and hostnames, the gethostbyname() returns an array containing the different IP addresses when invoked with the main hostname. Tuxedo picks one of these addresses to perform the bind() listen() network operations. When trying to bind() to the same port, this can lead to a conflict in some cases.
