Socket Error 106: 'Transport endpoint is already connected'

I am trying to write a simple FTP server in order to learn about
This is my first time trying sockets

This code should take a connection on port 8110, dump it to a client
"thread" (not a thread yet), print "Test\n" to the thread, and close
It fails on creating the client thread with error 106: 'Transport
endpoint is already connected'

On running the code:
dftp starting
getting the socket at at port 8110
listening for 5 connections
entering main loop
####pause here until telnet####
found a client @ <socket._socket object object at 0x2ba16f6cd650a ddr:
('', 58643)
Creating a new client socket
Trying to connect
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./dftpd.py", line 46, in ?
File "./dftpd.py", line 41, in main
clientThread = Connection(clie ntsocket, address);
File "/home/palmer/prog/dftp/dftpd/connection.py", line 29, in
self.sock.conne ct(a);
File "<string>", line 1, in connect
socket.error: (106, 'Transport endpoint is already connected')

Telnet output:
$ telnet localhost 8110
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.

Here's my code:
config is a stand-in for a config-file reader, now it just runs
localhost:8110 and 5 connections
debug just prints to standard out (the number afterwords is the level,
but now everything is printed)

Hi all, I am not sure that I am posting this in the right group but here it goes anyway. I am new to socket programming and I have been searching on the internet to the questions I am about to pose but have been unsuccessful in finding the answers so far.

Hi, I try to implement a reusable socket class to send and receive data. It seems to work but I have 2 problems : 1) I rely on Socket.Available to detect that the connection is closed (no more data to expect). Sometimes, Socket.Available returns 0 but the other end of the connection did not close it ! 2) This class will be used by many other classes so I have to use the

Hi, I feel like I should apologize in advance because I must be missing something fairly basic and fundamental here. I don't have a book on Python network programming (yet) and I haven't been able to find an answer on the net so far. I am trying to create a pair of programs, one (the client) will be short-lived (fairly) and the second (server) will act as a cache for the client. Both will run on the same machine, so I think a simple...

I'm trying to make something that once it is disconnected will automatically try to reconnect. I'll add some more features in later so it doesn't hammer the server but right now I just want to keep it simple and get that part working.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
