You cannot re-bind a socket once bound.

::shutdown() does not allow you to re-bind; it just will make the implementation start returning errors if you try to read (or write) on the socket. It's a somewhat ill specified system call, in that it doesn't have any immediate affect on the underlying network protocol, and most programs do not use it.

::closesocket() closes the socket, just like closing a file. Then you can then call ::socket() to create a new socket, and ::bind() it to some other port.
