Multiple Socket connection

Hi,

I need to open multiple socket connection to different IPs, which I will be doing it in a 'for' loop. Is it a best practice to create a new Socket object within the for loop? Or is it fine if I create a new Socket object before the for loop, use it for multiple connections and subsequently close it after the for loop.

Thanks.

How would you go about changing the host/IP a socket is connected to after it has been created?

You cannot use a Socket for multiple connections.
