What did you do?

To reproduce requires two application running and connecting to each other through TCP. So I've made a tiny repo that also includes the powershell build script.
dial-vs-listen

What did you expect to see?

I built the same go code for both Windows and Linux but at runtime the applications produced different results. Specifically with how TCP connections are dialed on each platform.

What did you see instead?

On Windows, when I run the two executables clientA.exe and clientB.exe (built from the build.ps1 script) I get the desired result. As seen in this screenshot:

However when I upload and execute the Linux binaries, the result is different:

ubuntu@ip-172-31-16-224:~/go/src/github.com/fanmanpro/dial-vs-listen$ sudo chmod +x clientA clientB

I don't expect the connection refused error since these two applications are running under the same environment and the permissions are identical.

I guess Linux (at least in its default configuration) doesn't allow such an active/active TCP connection, at least on localhost. Perhaps it's configurable. It'd probably work between two separate hosts, though.

This isn't so much a Go problem as an OS/config difference.

Closing, as I don't see anything to do here.
