I open a socket to a nntp server and connect. Everything works fine. I do a socket_recv or socket_read and get a line saying "200 news.rit.edu DNEWS 5.7b1, S1, posting OK". Then when I try to recv again or read again it freezes. If I add PHP_NORMAL_READ opt to socket_read it gives me "Warning: socket_read() [function.socket-read]: unable to read from socket [0]: The operation completed successfully. ". The code is below. Thanks in advance.

$socket = socket_create(AF_INET,SOCK_STREAM,SOL_TCP);
		die("Socket Creation failed");
	$result = socket_connect($socket,"news.rit.edu",119);
		die("Connection failed");
	$buffer = socket_read($socket,255);
	echo $buffer;
	$buffer = socket_read($socket,255,PHP_NORMAL_READ);
	echo $buffer;

You could try socket_set_nonblock() if you don't want it to freeze on no data.  I'm not sure if the default is blocking or non-blocking.
