    TCP keep alives


    Have a question regarding the implementation of TCP keep alives.

    If I enable the option of keep-alives on a TCP socket, is there any way that my application can get the response to the keep-alive back from the kernel. Basically, I have a 'select' blocking on a socket on which I have enabled keep-alives. I need to know if select would unblock if a response to a keep-alive sent by the kernel is received on the socket.

    Many thanks.
