wildcard address so that it can accept connections from any
interface. If \fIaddr\fR is a domain name that resolves to multiple IP
addresses that are available on the local machine, the socket will
listen on all of them.
.TP
\fB\-reuseaddr\fI boolean\fR
.
Tells the kernel whether to reuse the local address if there's no active socket
listening on it. This is the default on Windows.
.TP
\fB\-reuseport\fI boolean\fR
.
Tells the kernel whether to allow the binding of multiple sockets to the same
socket address. This is the default on Windows.
.PP
Server channels cannot be used for input or output; their sole use is to
accept new client connections. The channels created for each incoming
client connection are opened for input and output. Closing the server
channel shuts down the server so that no new connections will be
accepted;  however, existing connections will be unaffected.
