Simple socket server with python

It is a small example I created a server to see how it works with a client program made ​​in C + +.
I can not say that it really is a server that does not accept multiple connections.
The script worked stable sending manually entered text.
I not checked the stability for the large data streams.
It is also normal because as you see below is just one example.

import socket 
HOST = 'your-IP'
PORT = 5001
s= socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.bind((HOST,PORT))
s.listen(1)
conn,addr=s.accept()
print 'Conectat la =',addr
while 1:
 data = conn.recv(1024)
 if not data : 
  break
 conn.send(data)
 print data
conn.close()
The distance between me and the server was considerable.
