    that capture connect on a reserved port. To do this, capture binds a
    dynamic reserved port to connect to capserver, which verifies the
    integrity of the sender by looking at the portnumber that accept
    Note that this has the potential problem of burning a lot of reserved
    ports on ops (128 tiplines) since the kernel keeps the client side in
    TIME_WAIT for a minute or two after it is closed (the socket is in
    actual use for just a moment before being closed). If we try to
    restart capture too many times within a span of a minute or two, we
    might have problems. Will have to switch to a fancier protocol then.
