Hi Mark,
as Corinna wrote in the thread " Cygwin socket option SO_REUSEADDR operates unlike Linux", the cause for the problem in libtirpc is Microsofts implementation of socket handling. If i implement a simple socket client, that is not so much of an issue, because I call the functions separately and can handle the error. Moreover in this case bind() is not necessary.
But in the case of libtirpc the implementation of clnttcp_create() determines the sequence of bind() and connect() for the local port and you cannot correct the error of bind() after the call of connect(). Therefore I think best is to set the port number to zero (port = 0) before the call to bind().

Hi Raimund,
Where, exactly, would you set the port number to zero? I can imagine how this would solve the problem you're seeing but I'm concerned about other use cases.

It also seems a little odd to me we'd be making a Cygwin-specific patch rather than "fixing" Cygwin itself so the patch would not be necessary. But I don't feel strongly either way here. libtirpc already has Cygwin-specific patches.
