Winsock error 10070

WSAESTALE  -  Stale file handle reference.

Basic (Microsoft) information for 10070 a.k.a. WSAESTALE

The file handle reference is no longer available.

Detailed (Berkeley) information for winsock 10070, described as "Stale file handle reference."

Berkeley description: An attempt was made to access an open file (on an NFS filesystem) which is now unavailable as referenced by the file descriptor. This may indicate the file was deleted on the NFS server or some other catastrophic event occurred.

WinSock description: No equivalent. NFS is "network-related" in the strictest sense, but the Network File System protocol is an application protocol (i.e. a "high-level" protocol). The Windows Sockets API provides access to "low-level" API's (like the transport protocols TCP and UDP), so this error is not relevant to WinSock.
