Berkeley description: A connection was forcibly closed
by a peer. This normally results from a loss of the connection on the
remote socket due to a timeout or a reboot.
WinSock description: Same as Berkeley. On a datastream
socket, the connection was reset. This reset could be generated locally
by the network system when it detects a connection failure, or it might
be received from the remote host (in TCP terms, the remote host sent a
RST packet). This error is also possible on a datagram socket; for
instance, this error could result if your application sends a UDP
datagram to a host, which rejects it by responding with an ICMP Port
User suggestions: Some network systems have commands to
report statistics. In this case, it might be possible to check the count
of TCP RST packets received, or ICMP Port Unreachable packets. See other
suggestions under WSAECONNABORTED.
