[erlang-questions] enfile error in socket

Our server will not close the socket. The client itself closes the socket.
Do we need to close the socket even after the client closes the socket?
Is that be the reason of enfile error? Because, in the below link, it is
said that,*You're continously opening either files or sockets and not
closing them.*
