Hi. am starting out with network programming and unix network programming book. all its trying to do is connect to server and read time, but when i run it it says : 'connect error: Connection refused'

Here's the code :

#include    "unp.h"

int
main(int argc, char **argv)
{
    int sockfd, n;
    char                recvline[MAXLINE + 1];
    struct sockaddr_in  servaddr;

    if (argc != 2)
        err_quit("usage: a.out <IPaddress>");

    if ( (sockfd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0)) < 0)
        err_sys("socket error"); 


    bzero(&servaddr, sizeof(servaddr));
    servaddr.sin_family = AF_INET;
    servaddr.sin_port   = htons(14);    /* daytime server */
    if (inet_pton(AF_INET, argv[1], &servaddr.sin_addr) <= 0)
        err_quit("inet_pton error for %s", argv[1]);

    if (connect(sockfd, (SA *) &servaddr, sizeof(servaddr)) < 0)
        err_sys("connect error");

    while ( (n = read(sockfd, recvline, MAXLINE)) > 0) {
        recvline[n] = 0;    /* null terminate */
        if (fputs(recvline, stdout) == EOF)
            err_sys("fputs error");
    }
    if (n < 0)
        err_sys("read error");

    exit(0);
}

Note that it compiles with no errors. Please help this aspiring programmer. Thank you

Chances are that the server is not listening on port 14. Port 13 is used for daytime services. Also, you may want to connect with an NTP server, which would be listening on port 123.
