Winsock error 10044

WSAESOCKTNOSUPPORT  -  Socket type not supported.

Basic (Microsoft) information for 10044 a.k.a. WSAESOCKTNOSUPPORT

The support for the specified socket type does not exist in this address family. For example, the optional type SOCK_RAW might be selected in a socket call, and the implementation does not support SOCK_RAW sockets at all.

Detailed (Berkeley) information for winsock 10044, described as "Socket type not supported."

Berkeley description: The support for the socket type has not been configured into the system or no implementation for it exists.

WinSock description: Similar to Berkeley. The WinSock description for this error is "the specified socket type is not supported in this address family," which qualifies the error condition a bit more than the Berkeley explanation does. So, for example, you can expect this error if a WinSock implementation doesn't support socket type SOCK_RAW within the Internet address family (AF_INET).
