Berkeley description: A socket operation encountered a
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.
