Winsock error 10050

WSAENETDOWN  -  Network is down.

Basic (Microsoft) information for 10050 a.k.a. WSAENETDOWN

A socket operation encountered a dead network. This could indicate a serious failure of the network system (that is, the protocol stack that the Windows Sockets DLL runs over), the network interface, or the local network itself.

Detailed (Berkeley) information for winsock 10050, described as "Network is down."

Berkeley description: A socket operation encountered a dead network.

WinSock description: Same as Berkeley. As you can see from the comprehensive list of WinSock functions, this error is the catch-all. When it occurs, it could indicate a serious failure of your network system (i.e. the protocol stack that the WinSock DLL runs over).

User suggestions: Check your WinSock, protocol stack, network driver and network interface card configuration. Note that this error occurs rarely since a WinSock implementation cannot reliably detect hardware problems.
