Java socket read - why doesn't IIS close the socket?

P: n/a
Hi everybody,

I'm having problems with the following code:

InputStream hostIn = hostSock.getInputStream();

while (true) {
try {
iRead =;
catch (IOException ex1) {
System.out.println("Error on receive.");
if (iRead == -1) {
m_HostRcv.add(new ByteArr( (byte[]) m_Buf.clone(), iRead) );
rcvSum += iRead;

This code works fine with Apache webservers. returns -1 if
there is nothing left to read. On IIS webservers the read method
simply blocks if there is nothing left to receive. IIS doesn't seem to
close the socket. What can I do to avoid this? How do other people
handle this?

Thanks in advance for your postings.
