Next time, please ask a slightly smarter question:

I presume you are talking about a socket-based server program?

There's a timeout period during which your server port will be left 
unusable (according to the TCP standards). You can avoid this by setting 
the socket.SO_REUSEADDR option when you open your server socket.
