I need to build a daemon that will fetch URLs in asynchronus mode, that is
using events and callbacks, on request. The requests will be coming
through a socket as I've seen that's been suggested in some threads.

So I:
-fork a daemon
-create an async client
 * HTProfile_newNoCacheClient
 * create callbacks HTPrint_setCallback
 * add filters to handle termination HTNet_addAfter
-create a new request like in eventloop
 * HTRequest_new()
 * HTEvent_new(socket_parser, me, HT_PRIORITY_MAX, -1)
   and register the callback for the socket event
-create a socket
-bind it to a port
-register the socket HTEvent_register(sockfd, HTEvent_READ, grabber->socket_event)
-and finally HTEventList_newLoop()

Here I expect that when I get a connection and get the URL requested 
through that socket. But recvfrom always fails.

socket_parser (SOCKET s, void *param, HTEventType type) {
	if (recvfrom(s, buf, 255, 0, NULL, NULL) < 0) {
		return HT_ERROR;

I always hit this return HT_ERROR.

Any ideas of what could be happening? Any pointer to some other example or 

I've been browsing through the lists but haven't found an answer to my
