Is SO_REUSEPORT socket option supported in SCTP?

+2 votes

The SO_REUSEPORT socket option was introduced in mainstream kernel 3.9 for TCP/UDP. Is this option supported for SCTP also?

The latest centos6 kernel 2.6.32-417.el6 allows this socket option for SCTP, but does not seem to support it. I get port already in use error.

When I use multi-home function to setup link between 2 fedora 18 hosts, I can not use sctp_sendmsg to send any message and return error "Invalid Parameters" . but the same program runs well in Centos 6.

And the most wired thing is when I run Server side in centos and run Client side in fedora, I have the problem, but everything is fine when I run client side in centos but run server side on fedora.

Does anyone has the same problem?
